3rd grade: BIOPOEM NOTES
A biopoem is an 11-line poem that describes a person. In the standard biopoem structure, an individual is described largely through his or her experiences, hopes, and accomplishments rather than by basic characteristics such as gender, height, age, and race. In this lesson, students write a biopoem describing themselves.
Homework: Complete the following list on a separate sheet of paper.
4th grade: NAME ART
Our 3-D ALL ABOUT ME project is designed to help students reflect upon which characteristics make them unique. It will also help them to learn about their classmates and to form connections with other students who may share similar interests.
Homework: The first piece of the project is name art. Students should write their name in large letters and completely fill in the entire page with color, patterns or decorations.
5th grade: BODY CONSTRUCTION
Our “MY FUTURE LOOKS BRIGHT” project will introduce students to the working world they will one day enter. Students will identify and research a career in which they may be interested. This activity is designed to increase students’ knowledge of potential career options and the requirements to enter those fields.
Homework: The first piece of this project is body construction. Students will use construction paper and glue to create a paper body wearing the clothes that reflect the career they have chosen to research. I have a “big head” waiting for each body.
