Contest: Dismaying class assignments
It's the end of the school year and it's time for a new contest. In honor of Mike Schmoker's classic Crayola Curriculum article...
Last October I blogged about my son's assignment to write down all the numbers between 1,000 and 2,000. Here's another dismaying class assignment:
Floats must be completed and ready for "parade" on Friday, May 23.
Students will be presenting their floats to all of the other 4th graders. They will be shoring the information from their 5 x 8 cards (listed above), and they will need to give a brief explanation of their float.
The floats will also be on display at the [school name] State Fair.
Your turn. What you got? Deadline for submissions is June 10. Please either comment below or link back to this post from your own blog. Winner gets everlasting fame and a CASTLE mug!
Update: See the winning entry!
