Can I See Your ID Please?
I worked with a 2nd grade teacher recently on some presidential research in time for President's Day. She was working with a reading group of kids from across the grade level and did the biography reading and questions in her class, and then we worked together to make badges for the presidents. The kids had a blast and as a last minute addition, we decided to make the badges into a photostory and have the kids narrate them. There were a few mistakes from the kids misreading or misunderstanding something, but for the most part, they did a fantastic job! It was interesting to see what they picked out as being the most interesting facts about their presidents. They found more information than is included on the badges, but chose what they wanted to include. (They cited the images in the footers of the badges.) Here are some of their badges and you can see the narrated video above:
