It's March Madness Women's History Style. Fifth grade students are putting together an afternoon with a few women who have inspired them - their dream team, as it were.
The students worked with this form:
It might seem odd to put fifth graders on PebbleGo, but the way PebbleGo organizes their biographies, first by women, and then by topic makes it easy to round out a group of women.
Encyclopedia Britannica organizes the biographies alphabetically. It made it harder to search for people if you didn't have a name in mind.
Nonfiction like this was also a big hit:
Check out some of the dream team afternoons my students have put together. There are quite a few I would pop in on if I could!
This week my students will be creating an illustration for their afternoon. They'll share them and then I'll be displaying them. I am excited for the students and this opportunity to learn about all these amazing women from each other.
