How I Use It
I have used this in Science, Social studies and literacy instruction. The activities are project based and cross curricular. The students work in groups to create a product based on the topic. My students all loved the activities they did. They often did multiple products that were suggested OR added their own products like plays, dances and songs.
My Take
I have been wanting to delve into project based learning and this helped to create the structure and give me the tools to implement it in my 4th grade classroom. Even my students who have special needs such as ADHD and autism were activity engaged in the activities. I loved the creativity that my students showed when creating the projects.
