This is a biography bottle. The students used water bottles to make the body of the famous person they were studying. Most middle school social studies classes require a biography unit and this would be such a fun way to make a visual to go along with the presentation. LOVE THIS!!!!
I’m a big fan of one-on-one conferencing with students as a way to connect with them and check for understanding. I use this “deli-style” format with students as a fun way to let them know it is their turn to conference with me. Each student is given a ticket (from 1 to how ever many students you have in class) at the beginning of class and meets me at the designated conference area in the room when they hear the “DING!” and their number appears on the projector screen. Kids love it!
Learning a new language isn't always easy but foreign language learning apps can help through engaging and interactive content. Try Duolingo and Fabulo, FluentU works wonders also! Join me at my blog at to join me on my language immersion journey!
