This project can be used in any science, math or technology class.
Included: Teacher directions, student directions, grading rubric, sample projects. This is saved as a PowerPoint presentation. You can EDIT the directions for the students as you please.
I originally did this project with my applied math class composed of 32 students from 8 different nationalities in grades 9-12, most of which were in ESOL. It was a great collaborative project for them to practice their writing skills in English while reviewing basic mathematical concepts of the metric system and conversions.
Directions: Group students in pairs or three’s. In my experience 4 students to create one book is too many students; one usually doesn’t do much so stick to pairs or 3’s. Students can be given various review concepts to choose from or assign them at random. In my case the entire class had to create a children’s book using the metric system and conversions.
The following parts of a book must be included:
Cover Page with title of book, author and price
Title Page with information on the author, illustrator, title and copyright information
All pages need to be illustrated
The book must be securely bounded to resemble a real book
The necessary concepts must be covered within the storyline of the book
All pages must be numbered
Must be creative, neat, and in color
This is a great activity to foster collaboration amongst classmates and to give the students an opportunity to present in front of the class. You can have the students work on it for a week and then bring cookies and juice for story time when they exchange their work.
