If you know me, I LOVE to make flip charts with my 5th graders!
As a study guide for the chapter on early exploration, we made this flip chart.
On each outer flap the students wrote "Who Am I?" Then they wrote several
"I statements" to give clues to the explorer's name. You can see that my kiddos use their notes to make sure their information is correct.
This sample is the basic layout of the explorers' flip chart. I try to explain to the students that each statement must be specific to each person.
After the flip charts are completed, the students "share or trade" their flip chart with another student in class. Each student reads the "Who am I?" questions and tells who the explorer is. This can also be used as a whole class activity where each student comes to the from of the room to place their flip chart under the projector for everyone to view at the same time. Students can then raise their hand if they know the correct answer. Some students like to try and stump their peers with difficult questions.
Today I linked up with Forever in Fifth Grade for the October Show and Tell Tuesday. Check out what she has in store for Halloween this year!
Please send me a comment if you use flip charts or these are of any help for your students.
Enjoy the beautiful Fall weather with your family today!
