often times, we talk about authentic learning for our students. we want instruction to applicable to their lives and to have a purpose. keeping this in mind helps increase engagement among many other positive learning benefits.
One thing that we've discovered that has been pretty powerful has been our intermediate students creating learning products for our primary students. The older kids get so pumped to develop something for our younger students. they take great pride in their work and know that more than just their teacher will be on the receiving end of their work.
here are some of the projects our students have created:
1. e books for the primary students
2. children's picture book podcasts for the primary students
