|RK built the White House with popsicle sticks.|
The roof lifts up and she included facts about three rooms that she was interested in learning more about.
ECT (enrichment creativity time) has been a highlight of third trimester. Our district has encouraged the entire K-12 staff to include creativity throughout the school day. We have had district PD on what it looks like and sounds like. I decided learners in Room 234 would be apart of the decision making process. I posed a question: What do you want to learn more about and how could you use your creativity to share your project? When you ask a group of fifth graders and allow the gates to be wide open, their responses are amazing. The best part about the process for me (and them) was it was an opportunity for exploration as well as a chance for each learner to share their project with their peers. The criteria included:
- Learning goals
- Plan including a timeline
- Materials (most supplied from home)
- Completion and sharing with peers
