Welcome to the Sign of the Beaver Wiki. This is a place where you will find project ideas to use with the book, a voicethread that is used to make book predictions at various key points throughout the story, resources for further research projects relating to the book, and scoring rubrics to help score the projects.

You may use as much or as little as you wish. We will be planning some conference calls using Skype during the reading of the book. This will allow the students to connect throughout the unit.

Some notes:
  • The rubric/checklist is just a suggestion. Feel free to modify it for your classroom.
  • The grouping for projects is in-class. While we will try to set up conference calls for discussion, we decided that, at this early time of the year, the projects should be worked on within our own classrooms.
  • The project ideas are just suggestions. Should you or your students come up with other ideas, we would love to hear them. Feel free to add them to the discussion on the project page.
  • The licensing for this wiki is a (CC) non-commercial, attribution, share-alike license.
