I know I am new to researching online resources for the elementary grades, but a 1st grade teacher, Jennifer Vlach, (not related to Projects by Jen), shared this website with me today. This is nothing less than fabulous. It is a website dedicated to creative projects to do with students Pre-K through 5th grade. The online collaboration that exists here is the component that hooked me. She has created different VoiceThreads for teachers to collaborate and there are detailed instructions for all of the various projects listed. This is an award-winning site that is definitely worth a look. It's been around since 1999, so if you are already familiar with it, leave a comment on projects you've tried and how they went.
