Never Ending Projects

Never Ending Project Boards are a great way to extend understanding. These projects include different types of activities to engage every kind of learner.

How they work: Print out the project board. After reviewing, decide how many boxes need to be completed. Allow readers to work at their own pace and complete the agreed upon activities. While graphic organizers can be used, it is possible to create each box from generic items. Additionally, many of these project pieces lend themselves very well to audio-visual work.
