Last year I discovered Fred, the gummy worm, on Pinterest. I loved the idea of saving Fred, so I made a powerpoint to guide students in working together as a team to rescue the little guy.
I loved the project, and so did my students.
I am also really into Interactive Notebooks and thought Fred needed his own page, so I have spent some of my summer creating a special booklet so my students can really dig into learning about Fred.
Of course I think Fred is adorable, and my students think he is delicious!
Fred brings us to Research. Since it is the first project of the year, I get to see what my students know and what they still need to know in the research and writing department.
In the PowerPoint I have included a link to my website which has a page dedicated to Fred.
This webpage has just been started, but it should be looking real good by the time school begins in August.
to visit my website.
I think I need to finish with a couple of "Fred" pictures that highlighted the students collaboration and communication efforts.
