"Headlines" Activity

Students spent some time this week learning about changes in colonial America during the time of the French and Indian War by completing a graphic organizer web. After the webs were complete students had to create a headline to summarize and synthesize their learning. We discussed the role a headline plays in a newspaper story and examined actual headlines from the newspaper before starting the assignment.

The students should be very proud of their work and we will be using this thinking routine throughout the year.

Welcome!

I'd like to welcome my students and parents to an exciting year! This blog will highlight the classroom activities we will be doing throughout the year as well as discuss current events and historical happenings. Thank you for following this blog and I look forward to what's in store!
