Celebrate & WIN! Dear teachers and students, For a limited time only we are offering two opportunities to collaborate with our Nonfiction Minute authors - INSPIRE US! and ILLUSTRATION STATION.
INSPIRE US! Teachers: You and your students are invited to inspire our NF authors. Tell us what topics you would like us to write about. Whose biographies are you begging for? Which critters do you crave? What science facts send you scrambling for more? Send the classroom's top 3 ideas. We will share your ideas with our authors. If one of your topics is chosen you... WIN A 20-minute virtual visit with the author! This is your chance to ask those burning questions. How does an award-winning author do research? What's their best revision tip? 20 minutes of Q&A, so get your questions ready! (Date and time arranged separately with author.)
How to Submit: Send 3 ideas per classroom and a brief explanation as to why your students chose these topics, along with Teacher’s name, email, grade, and school address to CelebrateiNK10@gmail.com.
ILLUSTRATION STATION! Students: Create an illustration inspired by your favorite NF Minute. Maybe it's your version of a Gaudi building from The "Architect Who Hated Straight Lines" by Roxie Munro, or Morty from "Morty Makes a Stink" by Peggy Thomas, or perhaps Vicki Cobb inspired you to draw your nose when you read "The Mystery of Alternating Nostrils." Whatever it is, illustrate it and send it to us. We will display it on our Illustration Station page, and with the appropriate Minute.
How to Submit: Have a teacher or other adult scan your art. Save as a PDF. Attach the PDF file to an email that has your name, your grade, teacher’s name, school name and address, and title of the NF Minute you illustrated. Send to CelebrateiNK10@gmail.com.
