Looking for a fun and engaging way to keep students learning while on school vacation
? Then, you’re going to LOVE this super motivating and print-and-go resource!
The “This or That” School Break Project is designed to keep students’ minds active and engaged while on school vacation. Students have the option of selecting 3 assignments to work on while on break. There are 6 possible assignments for students to complete in all. However, each assignment is paired with another and students have the choice to select “this one” or “that one.”
By providing an opportunity for making choices, the assignments become more motivating and interesting for students. The assignments are designed to develop reading, writing, listening, and analyzing skills. Also, since the assignments tap into multiple learning styles, they improve student learning outcomes. With this project, students will not only return from their school vacation with new stories to share, they’ll also have practiced critical thinking skills that will have them ready to tap right back into classroom instruction.
Also included are step-by-step planning resources for each assignment and final copy resources for finished products. There’s even a rubric, too.
