…plus lots more creative ideas with PIZZAZZ!
• Many of the projects ask students to write descriptions, brief explanations, advertising copy, or short stories to accompany their creative designs to enhance their writing skills.
• Each task card is designed to stimulate thinking outside the box.
The activities are also ideal for challenging gifted and talented students.
• These are great projects for teamwork!
Allow students to work with a partner or in small groups so students can bounce ideas off each other and collaborate on the designs.
• Many projects can be taken a step further
by having students make actual models of their designs, not just draw them on paper.
