Final project time!

This week in אלונים (“Oak trees,” for 5th and 6th grades), we’ve been busy working on our final projects for the year! Our final project prompt is: Tell the story of your encounter with a big idea or question this year.

Children are working independently or in pairs to identify a big question or idea they had, connect the dots for us as to how that idea or question relates to a Torah text we read this year, and tell us about how they explored that big idea or question, whether it be through yetzirah (art/creativity), conversations with other Alonimers, or something else. Alonimers are using a variety of modalities to tell us about their encounters, but many are choosing to make podcasts with a visual accompaniment.

This week, Alonimers started planning for their projects by making outlines. Some children told me that they are learning about outlines in school, too, so they were well-prepared for this task. They are looking forward to start doing what they call the more exciting work of recording and making visuals next week!
