Our Bubble Bursting Gum Projects These projects turned out to be a fun & creative way to share several of the major standards that we focused on this year. The project incorporated the following: Timeline (The History of Gum) /Facts/Opinions/“How to” Writing (Written by students for parents to follow)/Compare/Contrast (Types of gum)
How to Blow a Bubble... First, students chewed a piece of gum. Then they wrote a paragraph about how to blow a bubble using transition words such as first, next, and last. Finally, they created a picture of themselves and attached a balloon to their picture so it looks like they are blowing a bubble!!
