6th Grade Language Arts: Do you want to build a snowglobe?
I think these snowglobes are adorable! However, I teach 6th grade. I'd like to do something similar with MY kiddos as either a narrative writing prompt or a response to literature. I think the detail would be AMAZING on the 6th grade level.
6th Grade Social Studies: Chinese Porcelain Plate
In 6th grade social studies we will be studying Ancient China. I think these plates are beautiful and would be a great hands on project to include...if I can find the time!
8th Grade Social Studies: Flag Project
The 8th graders are always complaining that I do "too many" art projects with 6th and 7th and not enough with them. In January, we will be studying the constitution. I think that this art project would be a great way for them to reflect on the meaning and images of the words of the Constitution as well as provide a collaborative, visual project for Open House at the end of the month.
Take a look at what some other awesome teachers will be doing this January!
