Mrs. Schmidt's fourth graders work on their STEM projects
For this novel, students were to show understanding by creating a brief summary of the chapter. Students were not informed of the chapter they would have to give the summary of prior to their assignment. This assured me that they would be prepared for all the chapters presented. Students had to create an illustration with their summary as well. Requirements were to make sure that they included the main idea to each chapter as well as have equal say in what would be written and illustrated.
