Last week, we had a mini-week. We were supposed to have vacation but lost due to Hurricane Irene. So I came up with a mini-unit for the students to work on during our three days. We researched our state!
First we brainstormed things we already knew about our state:
Then, we did our research and recorded our findings:
We used many different books to find our information.
We even located our state on different maps!
Last, we put all our information into our All About My State booklets:
The finished product!
I was a little nervous about this project since it was very different than anything we've ever done before. It was definitely a challenge for my little ones to do actual "research" but, boy, did they surprise me! Not only did they do a really great job, but they loved it!
Hopefully they enjoy this just as much!
