Just a heads up:
MONDAY (MARCH 3) AND TUESDAY (MARCH 4) STUDENTS WILL PUT TOGETHER THEIR EXPLORERS NOTEBOOKS. We'll use both Language Arts and Social Studies times on these days, which should give them enough time to [creatively] arrange their individual assignments onto construction paper. Finished books will be due on Friday, March 7.
A finished product like the “Explorers Notebook” shows the students’ ability to showcase their knowledge both critically and creatively. Just as students learn the importance of completing their work, they need also to develop interesting ways to express their ideas with effort and originality.. Simply said, a completed product clearly illustrates the quality of student thinking.
