Paper Bag Projects

It looks a little like Thanksgiving grocery shopping in our classroom with all these bags. However, we used these bags for our chronic conditions paper bag project.

Students were required to choose one of the eight from Mrs. Brown’s prezi and write the causes on one side and the symptoms on the other.

The paper bag projects were a great way for students to research these chronic conditions, think critically, defend their choices and work on their presentation skills. Thank you, Fairview Ingles for donating our bags to our classroom education!
