My class has been involved in a book drive with an organization that locates schools in need of books. We had a fantastic field trip meeting the students, and both schools would love to set up a reciprocal visit where their class comes to visit our school.
The school would like for me to come up with some type of activity/unit lesson that both schools learn about in their respective classrooms, and then do some kind of activity when they arrive.
I have no idea what kind of topic to choose that would be simple enough to do with the time constraints. (they are coming late Feb/early March) Ideally they'd like to work on the same unit together, but with the timing it's just not possible for us to do that. We're going to be discussing the Gold Rush soon, so I didn't know if maybe we could find an activity/topic within that theme...
Does anyone have any ideas? Hopefully what I'm in need of makes sense!
