Animal Research In Mrs. Schmidt's Class

Mrs. Schmidt's class did an excellent job researching animals last week. They were able to choose the animal they wanted to research and used the iPads to read about their animal on the World Book Online for Kids website.
After they did their research they typed and illustrated their story on the iPads using an app called Scribble Press. These students wrote some wonderful reports.

We recorded each student reading his/her report using a green screen for the background. They then each picked an image of their animal to put on the green screen. These are some fun reports to listen to. Enjoy!

Mrs. Woodward's 7th and 8th grade History Class has been learning about primary sources. Using primary sources she is having each student create a THINGLINK.  The topic they are reporting on include cattle drives and cow towns in the late 1800's. 

The THINGLINK'S they have created are captivating!  Please check them out-all you need to do is click on the links below. 

Mrs. Pickerill's Mystery Number Skype Adventures Continue

Today Mrs. Pickerill's class had another Mystery Number Skype with a class from Utah!

They worked very hard to guess each others' numbers. 

This is a student asking the other class a question. 

We are so excited, we guessed their number!  It was 17

Another great day in Mrs. Pickerill's class.
