Using guided project-based learning, students will explore their individual communities through differentiated posters. This activity is divided into three levels to be easily adaptable for different abilities within a single classroom.
Each student will make a project that explores the important people, places, and and groups in their community. Each project level asks students to make deeper connections between each place in the community and it's importance to the student and the community as a whole.
Students will explore these aspects of their community:
● A favorite restaurant
● Team (or special group)
● A special place in the community (Students’ Choice!)
This project is clearly divided into three levels for easy differentiated instruction:
Level One This community project has a lower writing component and is geared towards ESL/ELL students, struggling learners, and those with written output difficulties.
Level Two This community project has both written and visual components in a fairly equal balance. Students are asked to plan, draft, and write their projects.
Level Three This community project has a larger written component, and ask students to reflect further than levels one and two. Use this project for upper grades, or students who need a challenge.
☆ Also Included: ☆
Student self-assessment and teacher rubric to easily assess the project as a whole.
