Lab Activities

February, 2015 

Beginning the month with a snow day wasn't the highlight of the month, but it was exciting!
This picture was taken from my front yard.



ECP/Kindergarten

The Early Childhood students continued their quest playing ABCMouse while the Kindergarten students learned a new program, Sumdog.  They practiced their math skills while playing against other students around the world including their classmates.

Grade 1

The first graders began an "unplugged" #codingchallenge with a class from Taiwan (https://twitter.com/PanaAsavavatana) and Massachusetts (https://twitter.com/phoenixschool).   The class would create rhyming words, arrange them, and tweet the picture to the other classes.  We, in turn, would try to figure out the pattern.  It's been a fun adventure!


Grade 2

Animal Research Project
The second graders chose an animal to research.  Then they searched for facts using the Custom Search Engine I created.  Once they found their facts they used Google Slides to create a presentation.  They did an amazing job on their presentations! 

Grade 3

The third graders began A Week in the Life Project but introducing themselves using Vocaroo and downloading them to the Edmodo AWL group.  After they enjoyed exploring the Build with Chrome Lego Site.




Grade 4

The fourth graders learned how to create bar graphs using Google Spreadsheets.  They also explored Adventure games with NetSmartz.

Grade 5

The fifth graders explored the website, Zeal, practicing math and language arts concepts.  A smaller group of students worked the the Global Virtual Website Contest.



Grade 6

The sixth graders created facial descriptions for the Draw/Describe Kidlink Project.  In Art, they drew portraits of the descriptions they received from their global partners.  After, they were all posted on the site.

The students also participated in a summit, listening and learning about digital citizenship and the Digiteen/Digitween Project.  Students from Ohio and Wisconsin presented while they watched and listened.



Grade 7

The seventh graders finished their Digiteen/Digiteen digital citizenship projects using Powtoon or Google Slides.  They also collaborated via Edmodo with their global partners.

Grade 8

The eighth graders began their blogging challenge with students from all over the world.  

Thank you for reading!  Look for more activities in March!
