Holley Portraits

I did these Holley portraits a few years ago with my kids (before we had a classroom blog) and never took pictures of them. My fifth graders loathed the writing process and there were a LOT of groans and frustrated, blank faces during the project. Writing in Art? Oh the horror.

We were lucky to have "Scientists in Schools" come to visit us this week with their workshop for simple machines! The kids had a BLAST! Yesterday, after the workshop, I split the students into groups to see how they could do with a cut/sort activity. It created lots of great discussion about how many of the pictures included more than one simple machine. Here is my class hard at work: Then we talked about HOW the simple machines move. We went over some movement words to practise to help us…
