One of the things I have to teach my students is about George Washington Carver. This year I wanted to do something a little different that would make our learning more fun. We started learning about him through two different books.
These books are great to use because they give a lot of information about George. From the information they learned about him, we came up with what we knew about him. Then the students had to complete a writing about him from what they had learned. They also had to write more than one sentence on their writing. Then I thought it would be fun to make a big peanut and display our writing on it. So, that is what I created. A big peanut. I call him the Peanut Man. Here are some pictures of my students creating the Peanut Man.
I love how the Peanut Man turned out. I gave my students a choice of how to make the mouth. It is so interesting to see how they made their mouth. I think the students did a great job.
The Peanut Man could be used when studying plants. The writing could then be about how a peanut grows.
Come check out the Peanut Man at my shop!
