The Perfect Community!

Fifth graders have been working on Operation: Create a Community project.  By learning that throughout history, people have grouped themselves together for protection, assistance and companionship, thus becoming linked together not only geographically but emotionally, the students learned about becoming a community.  "Learning Crews" designed the "perfect community" utilizing their skill in persuasive writing to describe characteristics that make their community a desirable place to live.
Special thanks to Mrs. Quinn's fifth graders for letting me observe their project, the writing process and final creations.  Below is just one example of a book that was created.  This book can be downloaded on your iPad, iPhone, Nook, Kindle etc. by going to https://www.smashwords.com/books/search?query=forest+hills and signing up for a free account.  Well done fifth grade!
