Well, I talked about how my 4th and 5th grade enrichment classes would be making Community Action posters. Due to some creative scheduling needed for other reasons, I went from having 4th and 5th grade to having 2nd and 3rd. This is absolutely fine still, I just narrowed my 2nd graders’ topics so that we, as a class, could decide on one and focus on it. This takes out a lot of guess work when it comes to making the posters.
Today, students took their brainstorms and turned them into a layout for their posters. The posters are bigger and students had to practice “drawing light until you get it right” so that they didn’t have to start over. I was pleasantly pleased with all the effort coming out of the students. Check it out.
I was even more impressed when students decided to think of an overall concept that would encompass everything we could do to make the North Side a better place. 🙂 These students will change the world.
