 Cool Things You Can Do With Manila Envelopes

 
 
Students are really engaged when they can make things with their own hands.  Giving students a chance to record their understanding both visually and linguistically helps them to retain information and it is highly engaging. 
 
 
My post will be about all the cool things you can do with a manila envelope.  
 
Here are a few ideas:

  1. Thanks for all the great ideas! I am just embarking on my interactive notebook journey. These are some great ideas to add to my collection. I think the envelopes would be a great way to display student writing samples.

I am so impressed with this unit which manages to be distance learning and hands-on at the same time.  Really well thought out and engaging activities that allow students to practice each of the eight Science and Engineering Practices.  Really no prep for me!

The elephant article was excellent but I also thought the lab on dissecting a flower was broken down so easily, even telling me where to get inexpensive flowers!  This resource helped me teach this challenging standard in an engaging way.  Worth every penny!

My students loved this unit. I was able to present different elements of it throughout the month. It is hard to find interesting non-fictional, age-appropriate text for my students that they will enjoy. This was a great unit that aligned well for my students who have very different goals within the same group.
