Clip to ScrapBook #2

Usually I get to squeeze in a few short-lived mini-projects between those TC Lucy Calkins' mandatory units. I usually do such projects around holidays, like Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Year's, Earth Day. My students truly enjoy the Earth Day project as it encompasses many subjects such as writing, science, social studies, reading, and, of course math. Besides the usual recycle theme, I ask students to do research (research articles, study of media sources such as pictures; diagrams, statistics, etc). The writing usually takes 3-5 days to complete. At the end of the writing part, students do something hands-on, after which they present their projects to other students, administrators, and parents.
