In science we have been building upon what the students learned last year about the regions of Georgia. In third grade we study the plants and animals that live in each region and the adaptations they have that allow them to survive in their habitat. Students worked in teams to research one region using books, video clips and websites. They learned how to take notes by jotting reminder phrases instead of copying sentences directly out of a book. They took their notes and created a drafts of slides they would make for a presentation about their habitat. We added a technology component to this project. Students learned how to sign into their personal Google account, access Google Drive, and use Google Slides to create a presentation. Students applied the habits of scholarship (collaboration, craftsmanship and perseverance) as they worked with their team to develop these presentations.
