Mardi Gras fun! During this unit, students are given necklaces of Mardi Gras green, purple, and gold as they collaborate. Each cooperative group writes a paragraph about a different topic. Students research and produce rough drafts before revising and editing the final draft of their paragraph, which is combined with the others into a complete paper.
On February 5, fourth graders sampled the wonders of Mardi Gras(Fat Tuesday) as soon as they had finished their afternoon tutoring. Each 4th grade class shared a King Cake and one lucky student in every class found a "baby".
"Yum! What is this?"
"It's a King Cake."
" It is the most delicious cake I've ever tasted."
King Cake is not a traditional cake, but a Danish. It is decorated in the colors of
Mardi Gras. When you cut a King Cake there is a tiny gold baby doll in one of the
slices. If you get the slice, you will have good luck for a year. The King Cake
tradition has been around since the middle ages. You can buy it whenever youwant, but usually for Mardi Gras. -Composite paragraph from 4th Grade Writing
