As any teacher does, when getting ready to teach a new strategy or do something fun and creative with your students, you might quickly make something up and realize it worked really well with them! As I have time, I try to improve it a little bit, then put it online so that other teachers can hopefully benefit from something that has worked for me. Here are a few things I've been working on lately. Check them out!

Airport Project Representations

Thursday, November 3, 2016

Now that we're back from the airport, its time to condense what we learned on our trip and share our learning with others. The children got busy deciding how they would share and show all that they saw and experienced.

Kaylea and Bryant - flight board game

Elijah and Abby - "Plane Crash" Board Game. Click here to watch them demonstrate their game.
Haley Grace and Sidney - check in counter, baggage check

Yujin and Grace are creating a flight matching game

Ryan and Judah have created "Airport Monopoly"

JK is working on an iMovie and a paper mache airplane

Bhakti, Rhiley, and Axel are also working on iMovies

Cami and Anna are creating a security x-ray machine

Zainab, Sydney, and Carmen are making an airport puppet show

Landon is making a helicopter and heli-pad out of legos

It is so neat to see these kids working together to create a concrete representation of something they experienced. It is through this type of discovery and creating that children learn best. Stay tuned for the final products!

"Do not train children to learning by force and harshness, but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy to peculiar bent of the genius of each." - Plato
