Extension Activity to Out of the Dust
I used this activity as an on-going library lesson in collaboration with ELA teachers while students were reading Karen Hesse’s Out of the Dust. You may also choose to use this in your English/ELA classrooms. The unit takes 4-8 weeks, so I structured the extension activities every other week when students visited the library or you may choose to assign one project per week in your classroom.
The Research Menu includes activities using all eight multiple intelligences at the highest level of Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy: Creating. These student-led research projects can be connected to ELA, Library/Information Resources & Technology, Social Studies, Math, Science, Music, and Art.
