Anyone want to collaborate on a camp?
« on: July 13, 2015, 03:28:12 pm »
There are hundreds of teachers (at the least) on this site who are individually working towards the same goal. It would make a lot of sense to me if more people collaborated with each other. It would make our jobs easier, our camps would be better, and students would learn more; everybody wins.

So I just started working on my camp for next month and here's a general idea of what I have so far. This camp is for 5th and 6th graders but I'll also be making one for 3rd and 4th graders later.

The theme of the camp will be time and the first 3 days will be separated by past, present, and future. On present day, students will complete assignments based on who they are now. I'm thinking about handing out work sheets where they can partner up, ask each other questions, and then draw each other. On future day the topic will be all about what the future will be like and what the student will be like in the future. You get the idea.

Anyone down to collaborate? I'd also be willing to work on a 3rd or 4th grade camp together but I haven't even started thinking about that yet. I'm trying to come up with some fun ideas because I really want the students to have a good time.

This is a great idea and I would love to work with you if I were an elementary school teacher.

Thanks. It looks like no one is interested now but it would be cool if they opened up a subforum here for future camp collaborations. A lot of people post their camps and then people make small changes but I haven't seen any threads where people start from scratch and work together.

... but....but ...  these camps are a sort of collaboration... of sorts... Everybody adds to the original idea then we usually end up with rather refined camps towards the latter ends of the threads. 

I don't know if what you're suggesting can work. but who knows .. maybe..
