Grade 5: Science
Step 1: Google Form to "quiz" students on what they know about the human body.
Step 2: Students saw group responses: "Show Summary"
Step 3: Students accessed TrueFlix online to find the "truth" and to discover one other super cool human body fact that they posted on a padlet.
Students accessed Google Form & Padlet via the Hale Kula Library Website
Grade 4: Science
Step 1: Students use a Google Form to rewrite the benchmark in words a 2nd grader could understand.
Step 2: Students read through classmates responses to find similarities and differences in the rewritten benchmark.
Step 3: Co-teacher (or students) identify keywords from discussion.
Step 4: Students use keywords as search terms in Encyclopedia Britannica or Enchanted Learning, online, to "build the background."
Step 5: Students find facts and post on a padlet.
Grade 5: Inferences
Step 1: Students make inferences using images by adding comments to a presentation (visual literacy)
Step 2: Based on that activity, they suggest a definition of "inference."
Step 3: Students read a passage and make an inference.
Using Google Presentation to create & communicate creatively. A great relationship building activity!
