I first made this lesson because I knew I was going to be evaluated and was searching for an idea that would have my students super engaged. I found a biology lesson that involved making a cell out of food items and thought it would be fun to adapt to a yearbook spread. It turned out WAY better than I ever anticipated, and became one of my favorite lessons to teach. 

It takes some time to prepare this lesson but it is worth it! 

How to teach this lesson

DAY 1

king pica 

Take students through the story of King Pica. There is a PDF of the slides and a script to tell the story. At the end of the story, there are a few slides that show how the story “comes to life” into a yearbook spread, and then how to break the rules (once they know the rules).
