After developing a list of questions and research topics, the class spent several days compiling facts, pictures, maps, etc. Once the research was complete, each student was responsible for presenting his information in a creative way to his classmates. I was so impressed with the students' ideas and motivation to create, build, and design things to show their learning!
Once the information was shared creatively, we began designing floats for a Fifty State Float Parade (happening in the hallway now). I thought the research projects were impressive. I had no idea how amazingly awesome the floats were going to be. Who knew that learning could be so much fun?!?
Check out a few pictures and a video about the "Garden State!" Don't fuhgit about it!
