After Tracy had all of the job applications, she put them into six groups within the job categories and found special people to interview the students.
Mr. Tibbetts, our elementary principal, interviewed the roofers;
John interviewed the construction workers.
We loved reading through them as we prepared for the interviews too.Skype, and I went to Mr. Tibbett's office for a quiet place for the interviews.
We know that our construction workers will join the others in their class to create, build, decorate, market and sell the best cardboard house they can!
Next week as they dig into their jobs, John and the others will be there supporting these kids along the way. By bringing this opportunity to our students, we are giving them a real life experience they will not forget. It will tie into reading, writing, math, communication, science, social studies, art, research and so much more.
And the best part, they are in charge of their learning. They are being given a platform to share their talents, passions, knowledge and most of all, their voice.
Stay tuned for more from #OurHouse in Mrs. Ferguson's 2nd grade class at Van Meter!
