Eighth Graders Assessments - Learning and Fun!

8th Grade Assessment picThe past couple of weeks, our class has been working on the state required assessments for the eighth grade. We have a total of three assessments that we have to complete before the end of the year. In Spanish, we had to write and illustrate a short picture book about ourselves entirely in Spanish. Then we read our books to the first-grade class.

The other two assessments are linked together in English and History. It is called the History Hall of Fame project and the eighth graders do it every year. For the English part, we had to write a research paper about someone who has contributed to history. I chose Helen Keller. It was interesting to learn about her.

In History, we had to create a video or a presentation about our person. We could create a Prezi, a video interview, or a music video. I love to make videos. I chose "Baby" by Justin Bieber and rewrote the lyrics about Helen Keller. I created the music video using iMovie. Next week we are going to present our videos. I am super excited!
