    Explorers' Interviews
    By Elaine

    I read your post (I think on the S.S. board) about having students pair up for explorer interviews. We were just wrapping up our explorer research project and deciding how to present information to the group in a more creative way than the typical oral report. I used your idea. Students had already been working in pairs to research info about an explorer, so it was an easy transition for one student to become the interviewer while the other played the part of their explorer. Some students chose to dress as their explorer.

    Our research project involved writing an historically accurate and sequentially organized acrostic using their explorer's name, and creating an explorer "person" using construction paper. The jacket of the "person" was made from a 12 X 18 piece of construction paper that opened to reveal the typed final draft version of the acrostic.

    The finishing touch the interviews provided was the perfect strategy for tying the projects all together and providing a way to share info about all explorers with all students.

    Thank you so much for sharing, Carolyn. I always look forward to reading posts with your signature attached.
