A book designed by 6th graders - as a model of what student publishers can do! They were asked to compare parts of the body to everyday objects. See what happens when children are allowed to construct their own meaning. Working in teams they talked through process, determining which body part to select and how it operates within a body system. The best part of this is "the why" and they are always able to explain their thought process. Includes both student and teacher reflection.
