During the month of May our focus is on our future. In 4th grade we began discussing colleges as a way to further our education and open more doorways to careers. Using our downstairs bulletin board as a springboard, we discussed the importance of selecting a college that matches our interests. Real college websites are a great resource, but I thought I'd increase their engagement by having them explore Monsters University!
Students explored the site looking for the requirements to get in, classes available and clubs they could join. They filled out reflection sheets to take home and convince their parents that they wanted to apply. You can download a copy of it here.
