Take a look at Oysterponds.TV! The kids read adventure novels and then created a book trailer based on the events in the novel! They used many apps such as, superimpose, green screen, animation, sketchbook and iMovie to create their videos! If you click on the Intermediate 2 tab on Oysterponds.TV you can view their work!
In writing we're writing persuasive letters to Santa, from the point of view of a villain. Students chose villains from movie and storybooks such as, the Grinch and the Big Bad Wolf! They're writing to Santa to get off the naughty list and onto the nice list! Check out their letters and see if they will convince you!
In Math, we're continuing our unit on fractions. Right now we're focused on adding and subtracting fractions and then putting them in simplest form!
Social Studies we're studying another ancient civilization, Egypt! We made maps to show that people settled along the Nile River. People used the Nile for farming, transportation and fishing! Egyptian people had a social hierarchy, this decided if they were education or not! We will be making pyramids, writing hieroglyphics and doing a mummification experiment in the weeks to come!
Our next unit in Science, is on the solar system! We will be learning about different constellations and the planets!
