In 3rd grade, there is a heavy emphasis on entrepreneurs and those who make contributions to our community. We had our students research and compose an expository writing piece on Henry Ford. Students were required to share Henry Ford's contributions as well as make a personal connection to Henry Ford's life or accomplishments.
Optional: Our students published their pieces with the Pic-Collage app on Ipads.
Two rubrics fit to a page for an ease on your copy machine :)
