How great are these pop bottle biographies! Ms. Harris's third graders wrote four paragraphs after doing a lot of research on their chosen person - early life, adult life, education, accomplishments & achievements, and any other interesting facts or events. Then, they crafted their pop bottle to model that individual and presented to their class. Excellent work, third grade! Please visit our Facebook page for more photos.
