As part of their Project-Based Learning class, students at Udall Road Middle School recently held a library walk to display their latest assignments.

The Project-Based Learning class helps students learn through the hands-on process of creation. For this project, students were given a list of several types of projects – including a haunted house, a book nook, a board game, a food truck and many more – to showcase the process from the planning phase to completion. The students had to keep with an idea and a purpose throughout their project.

Students toured the library for a gallery walk to learn about their classmates’ projects. They answered questions about their similarities and differences and made notes about their likes and dislikes. At the end of the walk, the classes came together to revisit the goals of the project and answer the essential question: what lessons can be learned from planning and creating a product.

The students participated in Operation Christmas Child, an organization that helps collect shoeboxes filled with toys for children in need all across the world. Students picked out gifts, filled and wrapped their boxes with toys for a specific age group. Students also had the option to write a letter to their recipient and receive a letter in return. The shoeboxes were then packed up during the end of November and will be shipped around the world.
