Students use what they know about a country or states' resources, geography, climate,and history, to find an object around their house that could represent it. Example: Norway's major resources come from the sea. An object that might represent this could be a bottle of water, a can of tuna fish, etc.
Your students will surprise you with their creativity when coming up with their objects and decorating their shoeboxes. Have you ever seen a shoebox that was transformed into the Leaning Tower of Pisa?
Complete with a guide for implementation in your classroom, this EDITABLE project also comes with a task sheet, graphic organizer to guide student learning, rubric, and student checklist.
My students LOVED this project and I am a big fan too. I graded the project while the student presented it using the included rubric and I TOOK NO GRADING HOME. Don't forget to take pictures as these shoeboxes are a thing to remember!
