Here are two videos my students enjoyed this fall.
During our morning meeting and snack time, we sometimes take a look at what is going on in the world and connect it to our class:
*In science we are talking about how people design things. We saw a bit about the landfillharmonic:
We discussed how technology has changed in the past 50 years with this Prezi presentation.
*In general we were talking about how collaboration is now often online. We saw a bit of the Virtual choirs:
And how some people even “collaborate” with themselves using technology:
Peter Hollens (and by the way, Peter Hollens used these skills as part of the Virtual choirs listed above).
*We are studying magnetism–we saw a bit of the northern lights from the International Space Station:
*We were talking about why we wash our hands before we eat. NPR has a nice short video about how people catch the flu.
We are going to have a terrific year! In addition to all of the things we will be learning, we will travel to the Minnesota Zoo! It’s going to be a great year!
