I love to spend the first few weeks of school on building classroom community with a new class, and this project does that and so much more!
During this project, I use John Spencer and A.J. Juliani's LAUNCH cycle framework to guide you through this project and to help you and your students get to know what project based learning is all about. Students practice important life skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, creating and reflecting. Most importantly, this process will encourage empowerment and your students will be asking you when they can do the next project.
