I am really excited about this product! I was working with a group of my 1st grade students in guided reading and while discussing schema of turkeys (Thanksgiving), I had a student that didn't know very much about turkeys, but he informed me he knew a lot about butterflies, which turned out to be true!! This opened up a wonderful discussion of other subjects that my students knew about in our small group! I asked them if they would like to write down all the information they were giving me. This is the product that came from that discussion!
While working on this project, I thought there may be experts on subjects I do not have listed. So, I put one in there that is blank, where my students could fill it out themselves! This opens up endless possibilities! I hope you enjoy!! Please let me know if you have questions!
