With our 4th grade AG class, the teacher and I decided to research historical events that happened during Ben Franklin’s lifetime to give them a frame of reference as they read the book Ben and Me. Each student looked through the livebinder I made ahead of time and chose an event to research. Then they created a newspaper article on Word once they completed the research and wrote a rough draft. We would have used the newspaper generator we used last year for our Egypt project, but it limits the number of words that show up, so we went with this. They also included their citations using Citation Maker. The teacher did a great job then creating the timeline in the hall (with the students’ help!) and displayed all the articles.
