The packet that was sent home has a lot of detailed information. I have also attached the "Teacher Edition" of the packet here in case your child forgot to bring their packet home. Students will be completing a written project that is hidden inside a model of food. Student can choose any food they wish as long as it has not been chosen by someone else in the class already. I will be getting this information from students next week. Each part of the project must be included in its own section. The sections can be either written or typed. Students should take notes for each section as they read the book to make the process easier. To see examples of past projects go to the mrsnunez.weebly.com/reading.html
