This is an extremely versatile activity. Meaning:
(1) Activity can be adjusted VERY easily to the different levels and abilities of students we all have in our classrooms. There are 32 school houses. Please select the ones that are appropriate for your students.
(2) that slow or more detailed oriented workers can complete the project in the same time as the speed demons. They just won't have as many school houses to glue together.
(3) You as a teacher can control every page for the school house, give blank school houses so students can be free to do whatever they want, or somewhere in between. Most students will want extra of the blank one.
The first step of this project could be done in a creative writing center.
Let your students be creative! Give students time to color the school houses before putting them together.
These would be excellent hanging from your ceiling above the students desk.
