Science: The Greater Meaning with creative expression
(handicraft, recycled material project, diorama, cooking, land art, or art media: collage, paint, mold, chalk, pencil)
Even minor things can have a big impact or consequences on things around them. Choose one of the following and determine what influence it has on our life or the lives of those that were in that time, around that place, or in the future.
Some of your options are: earthquakes, silk, Epeira's Bridge, seeds, bats, turtles like Minn, and the Mississippi River.
Create something that demonstrates the impact it has on things around it.
Literature, Music, and Art: Characterization with oral expression
(presentation: Defend, Persuade, judge, compare/contrast, inform, narration)
Choose a character that you’ve read about this term. Consider what they think, how they feel, how they react or act in certain situations or with other characters, how they influence the people around them, how they make you feel, and what their relationships are like with other people.
Pick from our Shakespeare play from this term (Taming of the Shrew) or some of these stories: Apollo and Daphne, Pyramus and Thisbe, Cephalus and Procris, or Diana and Actaeon.
Then tell about them.
Bible & Social Studies: Action (Drama, Movement, Change) with movement
(play, puppet show, music, dance)
The Bible has lots of exciting things documented like the people of Israel taking Jericho, events when Joshua was leader of Israel, John baptizing Jesus, and how Christ fed hungry crowds.
Think about what happens to make their lives better or worse, how the people change over time, how things change, what were the consequences of the events, and what the turning point was.
When you are finished, create something to show what happened.
Social Studies: Mood with written expression
(narration, proposal, biography, persuade, problem/solution, instructions, list, poetry, composition)
We’ve read about lots of people and times in history this term. How would you feel being there with them? Are you scared, content, worried, anxious, joyful? Can you explain what must have happened in that time with that person?
You can choose from King Philip's War, Benjamin Franklin, the witches of Salem, early colonies, Lord Baltimore, William Penn, and Queen Victoria and write about them and the answers to the questions above.
Science & Social Studies: Background with visual expression
(diagrams, blow-outs, maps, graphic organizers, chart, pamphlet)
During different times in history, different inventions have been made and discovered. Think about some of the things that Benjamin Franklin invented or discovered. Or about the Wright Brothers and their first plane. Or about those that have developed waterway systems. Or about advances in prosthetic limbs.
What does the invention mean to the people that lived in that time of history or what does it mean to us today?
Using a diagram, show an invention and how it works. Be sure to add a caption that explains how it impacts lives.
Social Studies: View point with analytical expression

When we read a story, we get to see what is going on in the mind of other people. But there are always more points to consider.
Choose one of the two options provided to explain things from another view than the one that we’ve read about.
For the last 2 years, we read Pilgrims Progress. Within the last few weeks, we learned about John Bunyan’s life in Trial and Triumph. Explain how his life impacted his writing of Pilgrim’s Progress. OR Think about Robinson Crusoe. He changes in his understanding of God during his captivity on the island. How did God protect Crusoe even when Crusoe didn’t know he needed protection?
