"How to fly a paper plane?" in English class

In English class, students kicked off the 'How to' Unit by making paper airplanes. Each student followed directions to make their own plane and then flew them in class!

During this unit, students will read various 'How to' books including How to Babysit a Grandpa and How to Write a Story.

Then, students will brainstorm a list of things that they could teach someone else how to do. This is very exciting as students embrace the concept that they are all experts at something.

Then students will choose one topic and they will write their own 'How to' book!

Throughout the unit, the class will be doing some fun activities along the way such as bouncing an egg, how to tie a shoe, and how to draw an animal. English class is always fun at EFDM!
