  2. I am a math teacher and will use this concept with my older kids. One idea is with geometry and shapes...polygons and all their attributes. I'm going to have the kids create their own cards. This presentation has endless possibilities. Thanks, I love it.

  3. Can you share what you used to help students research spiders? I'd love to hear if/how students helped you made your chart in the first picture!

    1. We make the chart together during group time. I choose simple nonfiction books to guide our discussion. Now that I have done it a few times, I can even guide them towards the facts I know I want on the chart:)

  4. Did your students look up information about spiders? How did they find the information on your first chart?

    I'd love to hear more!
