NF UNIT P2 Digging Deeper

Part Two: Digging Deeper (aka research).

Day 1

Poem A Day:

Why? Because I love this song. Also, I can’t remember- I will come back to this one.


Today students turned in their final essays and I introduced their new projects.  You will have to click on that link to understand the rest of this unit 😉

Active Engagement:

We went to the LLC at our school where our FABULOUS librarian pulled the most exciting, relevant, and current nonfiction from the shelves. We talked about lots of the books students could choose, and each found one book they wanted to use for the project.


After checking out their books, students were asked to begin reading and thinking about what they may want to research based on the book they chose.
