Today our 4th graders made California Postcards in Publisher. We first discussed CA facts (bird, animal, motto, nickname, etc) and then brought that information into Publisher to make some very very nice postcards.
Here is an example of one.
Our 2nd grade is working in Kidspiration and today we worked on food groups.
We watched this video first.
It was great fun to hear them problem solve where to put certain items -- for instance: pizza could be in bread for the dough, in protein for the meet, or in dairy for the cheese. One student also figured out that they could get hints from me whether I had placed an item or not. Plus, as always, it is great to see them help each other out with spelling and learning a new program.
After that, we then played a game similar to Scattegories -- I showed my choices and if they had images I did not -- they got points.
Here is an example of one student's final score.
