PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is an awesome Social Studies project, which will help your students learn more about the California mission bells. This project encourages research and note taking. It is a great nonfiction writing activity. This project pairs very well with other Mission activities, as students can research their own Mission's bells (if they are assigned one in your class) and share about their own mission in this project.

Students learn about the bell system, and then fill out 4 of 6 possible bell papers. These are then folded and glued back to back to make an awesome 3D bell, which can be placed on counters or hung from the ceiling. Students love this activity in my classroom!

Bell Topics Include:
1) A California Bell System Title Page
2) Purpose of Mission Bells
3) Bell Characteristics
4) Typical Bell Schedule
5) Mission Bell Production
6) My Mission Bell (Students report on one individual mission with specifics)

I also provide a free Powerpoint (found here: ) that can be used to teach about the bell system, with minimal prep for you.

When I teach this unit, I usually do the following:
Day 1: Teach about bells while students practice note taking
Day 2-4: Pass out bell projects. Students transform their notes and bullets into informational sentences about the bell system.
