Our friendship novels are finished. By marking pages with post-its we were able to have meaningful discussions with our book group. We were also able to map our thinking throughout the book We are now going to use our knowledge of character traits and "showing not telling" to complete a project about the main character from our novel.
During our study of map skills we are reviewing components of a map and the compass rose. By magnetizing a needle, sticking it through a cork, and placing it in water, we were able to create our own compass. We now know which way is north, south, east, and west.
