Geography week is here! There are so many awesome things that our teachers have planned for geography week. And in the lab this week we will be tweeting about all the cool things we are doing and learning! But, just to celebrate, here are a few AWESOME sites that have to do with geography!
OLOGY is the Museum of Natural Historyʻs Website for Kids. It has all kinds of cool games, interactive activities, and much more! Check it out!
I recently wrote an article that was published in an educational technology magazine called Learning and Leading with Technology. The article talks about the awesome projects that our fifth graders did last school year with our friends in Baltimore, Maryland! Check out the article by clicking here!
During the last week of school Kumu Crabbe and the fifth graders were able to share different aspects of the Hawaiian culture with a small group of native Cree students in Canada. The fifth graders, led by Kumu Crabbe, shared some basic Hula steps and performed a couple of dances for the Canadian students. It was a wonderful way to end the year long of sharing and learning that we have had using a variety of technology tools. We are so lucky that we have such amazing tools at our fingertips that make it possible for us to share with other people from all over the world.
Take a look at our last Skype session of the year:
After a discussion about the importance of friendship in technology class, two of our fifth grade boys were inspired to create a video about their friendship. The video turned out to be so awesome I just had to share it here! Check it out:
