Ms. Jennifer Chapman planned a six week unit that allowed research, creativity, reading, and critical thinking. Sixth grade students selected a topic, read two books about the topic, and used search engines to conduct additional research. After completing extensive research, each student created a trifold display and collected media that would help to explain the topic. To add more excitement, students created various forms of art. Students used, tape, clay, paint, crayons, and pencils to express their creative side. Each topic was then presented to a classroom full of energetic and supportive classmates.
