Wow, do they know how to dig into a subject! Look at what Nappanee Elementary did with the continents theme.
The first of these is from Wea Ridge Elementary School. But most of these great activities come from Harrison School in South Bend. Wow, what an enthusiastic school!
Here are some images from early school visits 2006 and earlier. Many schools did huge projects. Each classroom, for instance, might focus on a biome and educate the rest of the school through dioramas and art. The books in the photos below were done by upper elementary students in Greenville, SC. They took my biome books and adapted them to create simpler “big books” for younger readers in grade 1. They then presented those books to those classrooms. Wow!
Also notice the rain forest cinquain tree, created by writing coaches in Ohio.
Most of these fantastic art projects were from school visits in Indianapolis, IN, Pettisville, OH, and Harrison, in South Bend, IN.
Lawrenceburg, IN was one of the first places to welcome me for a school visit, many years ago. They celebrated the honey guide with projects, including a honey comb made of toilet paper rolls!
