The third grade classes participated in a share fair today and showed off their “My Country” websites to their classmates and parents. The students picked a country of their choice, many choosing their country of origin, to complete an online research project. Students learned to use the online library databases to research content and how to search and download images online. Finally, they were trained in website creation using Share (a Tech4Learning product). The students not only participated in meaningful conversations and research within the content but also how to format presentations that are pleasing for the audience in regard to font size, the overuse of color, and organization.
If you were not able to attend the share fair today, the projects will be loaded to the third grade Blackboard site soon so that all parents can view their child’s work.
Congratulations 3rd graders on a job well done!
