Winter Session Begins in the AT&T Classroom
Winter session is underway in the AT&T Classroom. From Stow-Munroe Falls City Schools, Echo Hills teacher Cara Morelos and her third graders are doing a six-week unit focused on children’s literature. They began their unit by examining elements of fairy tales and are in the process of writing their own fairy tales. They started by creating storyboards of their plots and characters using Kidspiration software. The students are currently drafting their stories which they will publish on Big Universe, a website that provides online opportunities for reading and writing. Be sure to check back to our blog to read the students’ finished fairy tales!
Susan Louis (Holden Elementary, Kent City Schools) and her third graders are studying simple machines with a focus on robotics. They started their investigation by researching simple machines using online resources at Beacon Learning Center, BrainPop, and Ed-Heads.
Next, the students will explore robotics using the Lego WeDo Robotics software system. Stay tuned for postings of the students’ progress and creations.
