I'll organize the creative project requirements which will include the following:
- Focus your creative project on teaching specific information from our place value unit
- Work in mediums you enjoy such as visual arts, video, song, instrumental, theater, or dance.
- Make time to plan the work together, practice, review with a teacher, produce, and share.
I'll create a few opportunities for children to come to school early or stay late to work on their projects.
Toward the end of the unit, there will be a time to share the projects with classmates and perhaps others.
I'm not sure where this project will take us, but the reason I'm starting it is that I want to engage the students in the learning, and there is clearly a desire from these students to use art and creativity to learn. Let's see what happens.
