I usually have the students do an "All About Me" Time-line to plot their growth from infancy to now
Community Project-they create a poster board/display board of their neighborhood
Careers-What I Want to be When I grow Up (didn't do this one yet-will do it this year)
100th Day Project
When I taught 2nd Grade-research project on a famous African American
hope this gets you started
Have Fun-teaching is a wonderful job!!!!
