    Our project is complete! See the final product on the Wiki page entitled The students of 5A should be very proud of their work. This journey into the writing of non-fiction was similar to a space probe and its journey of exploration. We lifted off by studying the writing of Alexandra Siy in her book Cars on Mars. Using the book as our mentor text, we read like writers, learning all we could from the text, just as the space probe sifts for information in the universe. Through our Skype sessions with Alex, we asked questions and received feedback as we researched and wrote about our space probes. Students made important decisions as they drafted, revised, edited and used computer skills to import pictures and lay out their final piece of informational writing. Throughout this inquiry, questions from students guided our work and learning. As we think about implementing the ELA common core standards, this project required students to closely read complex literary and informational text. Through this interdisciplinary approach to literacy students truly experienced the reading-writing connection.

    Summer has officially started and our project is complete. I was thrilled to receive a copy of OFF TO THE COSMOS, the book 5A created with their teacher, Susan Anderson.
    Click OFF TO THE COSMOS to read the book which took much hard work, dedication, creative thinking, collaboration, perseverance, critical thinking, scientific understanding, language arts skills, and imagination to create. Congratulation to 5A and Susan Anderson for their impressive work!
