This lesson focused on Fall. The students were introduced to research using non-fiction books and readings. The students practiced the writing process by using a “web” to display fall facts that they have found, writing and editing rough drafts, and creating a final product. The students recorded their voices and all of the final Pixie projects were compiled and shared with the class.
