Consumer Text: Crafts


Bubbling Paper

As part of the fourth grade curriculum, the students learned about how to read, interpret, and actually execute a craft.


Following Steps/

Pirate  Folktales

Pieced together 'treasure map'

The students read two folktales (legends) about pirate treasures.  After answering comprehension questions, the students were each given a piece to a treasure map. 



The 'treasure' the students were in search of based upon map pieces and clues.

Once the students collaboratively found the missing pieces to their map by communicating with their peers, the three groups with their puzzled pieced maps followed the given steps to find the general area where the pirate symbol was.  If a group found a pirate, they were rewarded handsomely.

Class Dictionary

The students were to use our review of the parts of speech and review of the dictionary parts and layout to develop a dictionary definition of themselves. This put into practice their knowledge of dictionaries and the parts of speech--specifically, noun, adjective, and verb.
