Abrille Dixon's classes at Hammond Junior High Magnet School are currently working on a lapbook project demonstrating what they have learned about the Moroccan Market based on the Moroccan Market Writing Prompt. On their lapbook, each student must include a mini foldable, a paragraph about a personal travel or shopping experience that was similar to going to the Moroccan Market, and at least three vocabulary words with definitions. They are encouraged to make the lapbook as colorful and creative as possible and to make sure their lapbook appeals to as many of the five senses as possible.
