Over the past few weeks my 4th graders have completed a few projects. They include participating in the weather or not project by Projects by Jen, creating a timeline of their life including a milestone for each year, constructing a float to represent someone from black history or an explorer, and will soon write letters back to their pen pals including making a brochure to teach them a little about the history of Mardi Gras and making them a bead dog.

Each week, I choose a new student to be our weather person for the week. They take one of our class iPads and use the Kids Journal App to record the weather in our city using the link to our Weather Bug, which is a camera located on the top of our school that records the weather outside. At the end of the week I email our week's worth of journals to Jen. She posts them here or you can go straight to our link here.

Here is a look at a timeline created! She did such an awesome job.

Here's a look at some of the floats created by four students in my class. They chose MLK, Christopher Columbus, Hernando de Soto, and Harriett Tubman.

This week we will begin writing our letters back to our pen pals in New York, and telling them about the history of Mardi Gras, King Cake, and our notable bead dog. I am also excited because we will make bead dogs to send them from beads caught at parade.

Here are a few links that I will use this week.
