I paired them up and gave each group a paragraph from an article about firefighters (I got the article from the above link). Their task was to add appropriate text features to make the article more interesting and easier to read.
They used the computers and books to find pictures, maps, charts, graphs, and inserts to add to their piece of the article. Each pair had to add a heading to their section and find one word that should be bold. They loved it!!! Everyone worked hard all week long to find just the right elements.....
AND......I reached 1000 followers!! WHOOOHOOOO! I am so excited that so many of you care to read about what I do as a teacher. I love my job and I love sharing with others! Look for a fabulous giveaway in the next couple days and a couple of huge freebies this Friday! Thank You for following me!!!
