3B loves connecting with and collaborating with other classes and this week we are starting a collaborative research project. I connected with a teacher on Twitter who teaches grade 4 in Alberta. They happened to be studying plants like we are so we decided to have our classes research different plant topics and share their information in a google document. They will then work with their partner (through the Internet) to create a presentation to share with their classmates. All of the creating of the project will be done with their Alberta partner through the Internet. 3B are quite excited by this.
In Social Studies, we are learning about Vikings. We are currently doing measurement in Math. In Language Arts, each student is reading a historical fiction book and working on comprehension activities which are all on our blogs.
Check back later to learn how our plant projects are going.
