Below, a student is presenting her famous person "character in a bag" project about Eleanor Roosevelt.
Back in the fall, when I taught 4th grade Judaic Studies, I was thrilled to think of a gardening related project when we studied Sefer Yehoshua (the prophet Joshua.) In ch. 2, when the spies go into Jericho, there is a good description of Rachav's inn in the wall, with the rope hanging out the window with the notifying red thread. The spies hid in flax on the roof. So what did we do? You will understand from the picture below, and oh, was it fun to make these... we made paper "rock walls" to be laminated and wrapped around cleaned out peanut butter jars, and each wall had all the things we read about in the chapter. Then we cut out little men (the spies) from foam paper and added googly eyes. Then we filled the containers with soil and planted flax in them! That way the little spies could hide in there when the king's army came looking for the traitors. (And they wouldn't get soaked from watering because they were made of foam.) It was super cute and the flax grew very tall!
We also did a great skit from the same unit.
