This project allow students to practice writing and speaking about their childhood memories (practicing the use of the past tense in context). The project provides differentiation by allowing students to choose from different formats ( collage,scrapbook,time line), and also it is a great way to encourage their creative writing.
The project file includes sample pictures (from projects created by my students), rubrics for the project and for the oral presentation, and detailed instructions.
My students took one week in class to complete the project, but you can decide how many days you want to devote to this project in class.
Many parent contacted me expressing their gratitude for providing an opportunity for dialog at home- students need to interview parents first to find out information about important moments of their childhood, and to select pictures that could be used for their projects.
