Sum-thing Important

Interest your class with two texts: Can Waves Make Electricity? and Bats Bump Into Big Trouble. After discussing what a summary is, learners will take notes, read the texts, and write a paragraph for one of the texts. The teacher completes a model on the board before the writers break off on their own.

I have used several hands-on lessons that have helped to engage my students in topics that may have been mundane to them. I do not have a text book or resources for many of the topics that I teach, and it is nice to find so many resources in one place.
