The kids enjoyed gathering information, coming up with ideas, they enjoyed the facts I read about Europe. It was their first research project! I learned that this was the best way for me to help them understand what I had been trying to teach them all along.
I plan to create more posters with them as the year goes on. The next poster is going to be on a historical figure. I was thinking, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Marie curie even! The list can go on forever! How do you teach these topics in your classroom?
