Scholars from Laura Gerlach’s class at Furlow Charter School spread out working in small groups to investigate a variety of artifacts gathered during travels across the United States. As they uncovered details about the states, each group recorded a list of different types of publications reviewed in the collection. The purpose of this activity was to expose the fourth-graders to real-life examples they may want to replicate during their projects and presentations. Things like play bills, menus, receipts, applications, ticket stubs, survey cards, and more are creative ways for the scholars to show what they know. Shown here, Taylor Sheppard, Karen Perez-Juarez, and Chloe Wooden work together to look through the printed materials in order to create a list of ideas for their future assignments.
