Seventh-graders Write Children’s Books

Each year, science teacher Kristin Suer asks her seventh-graders to use their newly acquired knowledge of the solar system to write and illustrate children’s books about planets. Students recently worked collaboratively, in masks and face shields, to write their books. “Students were tasked with including 10 facts about their chosen planet while making a fictional story about life between other planet friends or new inhabitants on the planet itself,” Suer said. “They really enjoyed creating the books and used various APPs to do them electronically!”  First-graders will also be studying space in the winter so the seventh-graders will Zoom their new buddies during that time to read their books.
