Day 1: I will explain the project. Students will be creating Electronic Greeting Cards. We will brain storm all the reasons that people give/receive cards. The students will decide on a topic. (Get Well, Happy Birthday, Graduation, Holidays, etc.)

Day 2: After the students have chosen a holiday, season, or other greeting card topic. They will research that topic. They will research possible historical information, dates, or times. They will view samples of other E-cards. They will look at other sayings and descriptions inside those types of cards. The students will be able to help each other, but all students will have an E-card to send to someone.

Day 3: The students will devise a 1 - 2 minute presentation for the E - Card. This could include but not be limited to: skits, songs, poems, factual readings

Day 4: The students will practice.

Day 5: The E-Cards will be video recorded.
Cross-Curriculum Ideas
Depending on the holiday or topic chosen, this would encompass many other curricular areas. Math = dates/calendar, Reading/Research, Social Studies, Science/Earth Day Card, ect.
The students will send the card to someone.
