Florida Geography Projects will be introduced on September 3rd in class and they will be due BY Monday, September 16th. (Your child is more than welcome to turn in his/her project earlier than the due date.) The purpose of this "at-home" project is to have a fun and meaningful way to enrich and extend all that we are studying in our first unit of Social Studies (DOSS), Florida's Geography. Each student will receive a guideline (blue handout) with all of the expectations for this project. The above example highlights one example that has been completed by a former Chets Creek 4th Grader to give you an idea on how you might proceed, however, creativity is encouraged. Some students may choose the provided flour recipe, and others may choose to use modeling clay or styrofoam. The sky is the limit! This project will count as a test grade in Social Studies for this first nine weeks.
Students, what idea might YOU try for your at-home project?
