The Red Sun by Alane Adams 6th Grade Genius Hour Projects Leestown Middle School

Used Google Slides to Gather Student Work

Students selected a slide and were asked to place their project links and summary in one spot so I could create a Smore to Share with the author Alane Adams. Students who did not have their own photos downloaded photos from the Google Photos link above.

After finishing their slide they could browse other student slides.
