PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

'Twas the week before break and the students were stirring...they needed wanted activities to keep their minds whirring.

This combo-platter bundle includes two Christmas products:
Save Christmas & QReate-a-Story

One is a project based learning activity (just print and go), the other combines QR codes and writing for some holiday themed adventures.

Save Christmas! A Holiday Themed Project Based Learning Activity
This project takes elements of math, writing, social studies, ELA, and technology and combines them with student imagination and creativity as they work through the problem of finding the missing Naughty & Nice List.

10 activities (1 page for each) for students to work through. Each page involves a problem or idea they must solve, recreate, or answer.

-So, What Happened was (intro)...
-Text All About It--writing, technology
-Around the World--social studies, map skills
-Around Town--social studies, community, map skills
-The Neighborhood--maps skills, technology

-Pack Your Bags--reasoning, inference
-Express Polar Travel--creative writing,
-The polar bear problem--math skills, geometry
-Santa’s Village--math, social studies
-You, the Hero--writing, ELA

As students work through each page of the project they will make their own decisions and choose the outcomes. By the end all students will have completed the project, but each version will be based on the users own imagination, creativity, and knowledge base.

All pages can be geared towards multiple grade levels, although for some younger students the teacher may need to give more explicit instructions.

Though not needed, students may choose to use textbooks, maps, computers, the Internet, and/more to complete each page. They might even choose to work with a partner, ultimately the choice is yours (as the teacher).

-For quick use just print off the pages. There are 14 pages. Give them out one at a time or staple them all together.
