wrote last month, the third graders have been working on a huge digital country project over the last few months. Last week, the third graders celebrate their hard work and what they learned with their families and community at the "3rd Grade Country Potluck".
At the potluck they shared their Little Bird Tales entitled Fun Country Facts. They created this together as a class. You can read about the creation of the Little Bird Tales here.
The students also created digital projects using different Web 2.0 tools too. They could use VoiceThread,
Animoto, (You can see the rest of their country Animoto's on the wiki above. Each country has their very own page for research and storing their digital project.)
FlipSnack, which makes an interactive eBook out of PDF's. In this one, she created pages for her country facts with Wordle.
I had so much fun working with Ann Volk, the 3rd grade social studies teacher at Van Meter, and all of her amazing students.
Don't forget to check out the Third Grade Country Wiki to see all of the projects listed under each country page on the right hand side.
I can't wait to see what they create next!
