Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much. ~ Helen Keller
The haunted house build is complete, and it was a huge success! The kids were engaged each day of the build without much redirection needed from me. (Well you always have a few!) The students presented their houses to the class yesterday and explained why they design certain features in their homes. One house even had a witch who “flew” down from the roof on straws and landed seated in a chair. So cool!
The kids are finishing up their personal reflections about the process and the product. I can’t wait until Thursday to read them. This makes me want to find a way to use Project Based Learning more often in my ELA classroom. I am just not sure how or what to do next? I will keep thinking though.
Please take a look at my iMovie documentation of the process.
