PILLOW PAL PROJECT
5TH GRADE: Ms. Cindy Ochoa
During the 1st six weeks, Ms. Ochoa’s students completed a “Pillow Pal Project” (PBL). Their driving question was, “How can we, as 5th grade students, living in Cotulla, Texas, positively contribute to other children in a time of need?”
This PBL came up as students discussed Hurricane Harvey and its impact on the Texas coast. Students decided to buy pillows, blankets, toys, and books and donate them to kids who had been displaced due to the hurricane.
