HAPPY NEW YEAR!
What do you wonder about the cold?
On Monday, when the kids were still on break, the teachers had some technology training. A new tool was discovered by this first grade teacher and we played with it. Since there were a lot of schools out we decided to talk about WHY, even though it wasn't snowing, that was happening. I asked students to write down questions about the cold weather. We put the questions in a Popplet. When we finished, students paired up with iPads to search Google, Weather.com, and YouTube for answers and evidence. The videos come out small if you add them to the Popplet, so there are just links for the videos and articles. Here is our finished result - not bad for a first try I would say!http://popplet.com/app/#/2251602
