6th Grade Research Projects

Over the past month, 6th grade students used the research skills we have learned this year to research groups on Minnesota Native Americans.

I collaborated with their teacher to teach students how to make iMovies, find license free photographs and create a GLOG (an online poster using multimedia). Students used Glogster EDU to create projects incorporating their writing skills, images, and movies.

See their completed projects below:

3rd Grade Research

In 3rd Grade I recently worked with students to do research on Native American groups from the South Western United States.

Students summarized their notes and learned about evaluating images to choose appropriate images to draw for their eBooks. Students created images on the computer. We then worked as groups to upload our paragraphs and drawings to Flipsnack EDU a wonderful FREE tool to create eBooks.

Here are our completed projects:

Playaways!

I am super excited about our new playaways. Our students are too!

Audio books that kids can listen to with no extra equipment needed are a great way for students to listen to books and improve their fluency.
