Earth Day Newsletter Project
This is a project I have been using with my fourth grade classes for the past couple years. It is perfect to use for Language Arts as it focuses on creating informational text based on research. It also works well for Science since students can use their knowledge of Natural Resources and Energy to complete the project.
This project has students pair up and create a newsletter about Earth Day. Students will create a title for their newsletter (using popular newspapers for inspiration), each member will write 1 main article on a topic of their choice (related to Earth Day of course), and together the pair will create some sort of Word Game (crossword puzzle, word search, scramble/jumble, etc.), a main graphic feature, and two advertisements.
*A more advanced version is included in this file as well, which would be done best using "Newsletter Template C."
