One of my favorite activities was in 5th grade. We were learning about Native Americans and each student drew out the name of a tribe and then drew out a category-food, homes, crafts, weapons, etc. The student was responsible for creating a project for that particular tribe and category (i.e. Seneca homes). We had a Native American Fair and parents and other classes were invited to come see our projects. We stood with our projects and told the people about them and how we made them. A few people were chosen to do presentations for the parents also. Mine was a dream catcher (I had crafts, but I don't remember which tribe it was for). It was so much fun!
This blog is a place where I would like everyone to share some of their favorite activities done in school. You know, the ones that made you say "That was so awesome!" Please give a description of the activity and why you liked it so much. Teachers are great about sharing ideas and students are great about telling you what they like and what they don't, so why not put all this together?
