Picture Books for Panama

Plan. Design. Create. Share.

Hi! My name is Janelle Dalgord and I have had the pleasure of working with your students for the past 5 weeks on an integrated unit plan that connected both social studies and language arts. Students worked very hard to construct digital picture books to inform young students in Panama what we do for fun in the wintertime here in Marquette.

Students analyzed printed picture books, researched online, created an outline of their story, and used the online digital tool to create their very own stories. We had topics such as ice hockey, skiing, soccer, and skating. Students completed their stories in class and I will be sending them to our fellow coordinating teacher in Panama to share with his students. Your child was very excited about the opportunity to share our culture with students in another country!
