Most of the children were able to create a blog post to share the informational writing they created to share all they had learned about the weather topic they chose to research and study.
When you read through their posts you can learn about sandstorms and blizzards, hurricanes and tornadoes. You can learn about snow, clouds rainbows and meteorology too. They have worked for several weeks to do the research, type their information and publish both illustrated books and these blog posts that are accompanied by another piece of original art.
If you have the time, please let them know what you learn from their information, what you notice about their writing and organizational choices and how their illustration highlights a piece of their learning. Ask them questions – they likely have even more to tell.
This post is illustrated by cooperative, small-group illustrations made to show the five hurricane levels defined by the Saffir-Simpson Wind Scale.
