As part of the ELA curriculum, all 4th grade students completed a nonfiction project. There were several requirements that the students had to address, such as sharing a comment about the author of the book, a summary of the book and facts learned, opinion of the book and supporting evidence, etc.
Each student was instructed to select a nonfiction book and decided on the format that they would use to complete the project,. Choices includined a newspaper, a brochure, a newscast, and a google presentation. Using a graphic organizer, checklist and Chromebooks, students completed their projects and presented them to their classmates.
