B-P’s instructional technology coach Allison Renda teamed up with fifth grade ELA teacher Nicole Szala for a fun project that ended up bringing smiles to everyone at BPES!
Students watched a video about a phenomenon called “eyebombing” — placing self-adhesive googly eyes on common objects in heavily trafficked areas, as a way to give the object a “personality.”
The objective is to create something joyful for the community, but B-P’s fifth graders took it one step further and used the project as subject matter for a creative writing activity.
Each student placed googly eyes on an object somewhere on the BPES campus and created a character that they then wrote about. What a fun way to flex creative muscles and spread a little joy at the same time!
