Classroom Update

This week our class participated in Digital Learning Day on Wednesday with our first research project that will continue through next week. Students are researching penguins and polar bears with the goal of creating 2 class books with their final research. They used QR codes and scanned with the ipads to research. They will also be using books, articles, and MyOn for their research. We extended our learning into our Fun Friday Science where we modeled blubber to show how animals stay warm in such cold temperatures.
