This set contains materials to help you teach paragraph writing through the ME Museum Project. This is a great Back to School community building activity that allows students to share their hobbies, talents and interests with their classmates and teacher. Students will create a desk top museum that includes “artifacts” that represent them. You will model and teach paragraph writing as students will need to write explanations about each item that they include. I use the four square and webbing graphic organizers to teach students how organize their paragraph into a main idea and detail sentences. Students then create desktop museums, placing their artifacts and explanations on top. Students then can get to know one another by touring each others’ museums
This set includes: a parent letter, description of the process, Me Museum report cover, four square and webbing templates, and grading rubric.
