You did it again! Your project is great. Wow, I'd love a copy of the Jeopardy Game! Where can I buy one???
Your kids did some great projects. It is amazing what they will do when they are given a chance to do a project their way. Wonderful!!!

Thanks, Hope, Susan, and Norma for your very kind words of encouragement.

I do have to say that the kids made me very proud - and, boy, they sure know their butterflies now!

All kidding aside - do you want me to ask Sam if his Dad could make a generic, programmable Butterfly Jeopardy to sell?

Could he really do that?

I don't know, Norma, but I could ask. Now that I think of it, I should ask Sam if he would donate it to the class - smile!

Do you all remember how disappointed I was when I gave the kids the assignment? I was so worried that they would choose "easy" projects - almost all of them did not!

This has been an amazing experience for me. Thank you to all of you for sharing and caring!

I definitely think you should ask Sam to donate it to your class.

I remember when you thought they would
do the easy projects. On Thursday when we talked about the year, my students told me that they loved being able to choose their projects. I had some beautiful things turned in. My artists were delighted to show off their talents. I remember the enthusiasm they started with and it never ended. Everyday was exciting as they discovered and learned about butterflies. I think their favorite part was looking for caterpillars when ours died. They were all willing to pitch in to find food for them and they hovered over them like expectant parents. This was one of their favorite things this year. They also told me that they loved that I kept them busy (involved and thinking-my words) all year. They loved it.

The jeopardy game looks like so much fun... and the kids love playing. This project has certainly demonstrated the multiple ways to teach and learn content... all without any drill and practice. What wonderful work everyone has done and what excellent learning has taken place.
