Zines (pronounced zeen) are small handmade booklets that cover any topic and can be easily photocopied and distributed. Your students can choose any topic or you can limit them. I had my students choose between 3 topics (How to, environmental awareness or culture/heritage). Below I have provided google slides, a printable handout of the project overview (thumbnails are on the back) and a grading rubric. My zine display outside of my room window.

This lesson of mine is a teacher FAV! I was bored of the traditional “Value Ice Cream” lesson you see all over Pinterest so I decided to spice it up.

In order for the lesson to work, each student will need to create 4 sections within their cactus. If they draw “arms” to their cactus, they too, will need 4 sections. No ..read more
