Whales, Flags, Spiders and Tee Pees

     One day a week I allow my students to grab an encyclopedia and write about or draw something they found interesting in their volume.  (They ask me if they can do this on other days, but Wednesday is usually the weekly "encyclopedia day".)  The results are sometimes astounding.  They are learning about animals, insects, history, and art.  They are having fun and learning at the same time.
