And, I wrote about it here. You can read the full run down on the original post, but here's the condensed version:
Day 1: I shared my main idea bag with the kids. They planned their bags.
Day 2: The kids "built" their bags. They brought some things in from home, drew pictures, made things out of construction paper, and printed pictures off the Internet (love Kid Rex!)
Day 3: They practiced in their groups.
Day 4: They presented their lesson to second graders. The second graders rotated through the groups. They loved it, and my kiddos were invested in this lesson because they had a real purpose.
I am a bad blogger and didn't take new pictures this year. They're are four days left, and I'm pooped! I have to say, the kids loved these two activities. They're fun, educational, and gives me an opportunity to make a dent in that mountain of end of the year paperwork. How is that not a win?
