For the last couple of years I have been working with my colleague, Marie Rodriguez-Gonzalez (the kids call her Mrs. Rod-Gon.) to develop a comprehensive research and writing project using penguins as the theme during the month of January. We have both really had fun with the project, and have watched our students do some amazing writing.
We actually begin with a fun web-quest. Originally, we used this amazing product from created by Linda McCormick.
Even the web-quest has morphed and we now use this new product.
In an earlier post, I have written and explained about the first steps in the writing project. Click here for the earlier information.
