My class just finished up a project for Black History Month. Check out the pictures below and grab this freebie.
I am a big fan of choice boards. My students really enjoy getting to choose their own projects, and I make sure that the projects are varied for different learning styles. Win, win. Here is a thumbnail of the assignment, which you can have for free at my TPT store!
On the day the projects are due, the students set them up on their tables with a "Compliment Sheet." I play 4-5 songs and we do a Gallery Walk - where the students walk around writing compliments to each other about their projects.
My class L-O-V-E-S this song (see link below). "Baby Elephant Walk" by Henry Mancini. They beg to hear it every time we do a Gallery Walk. It's pretty fun. :)
When the last song ends, the students return to their seats and are SO excited to read all the compliments. It's so sweet. And, it is a great way to share a lot of projects without spending hours and hours on dry presentations. I still let them all share one or two fun facts with the class if they'd like, but I have become a big fan of the Gallery Walks.
Here are a few of the finished projects. Take a look! And if you like them, feel free to pick it up for FREE at my TPT store! Enjoy!!

Notice the collage on the iPad. The student made the
collage her background and then left sticky note directions on
how to see the collage: In case you can't read the note, it says:
"Press Home button to see."
"Do Not Touch Otherwise!" Too funny.
