Third graders love writing! During our recently completed nonfiction unit, students chose a topic to write about based on their own expertise. Students chose to share their knowledge about how to design a locker, various sports, several animals, and space. The students learned to organize their thoughts into chapters and write their stories in an engaging way. Their own knowledge base was strengthened through research conducted on Britannica School, a safe, up-to-date, age-appropriate online resource for elementary, middle, and high school students. Special thanks to Mrs. Brainin for showing us how to use this great website. The unit concluded with students teaching their classmates the subjects that held a special interest to them and celebrating their classmates’ accomplishments.
