January 5- January 8

Happy New Year! I hope 2016 is a happy, healthy year for you all!

The 4th Graders are learning how to effectively search in Google using key words.  We also are discussing that research yields accessing different databases, but Google can give is a quick answer when needed.  To end class, we used A Google A Day to  put the skills we talked about to the test.  Did you know that when you search, capitalization and punctuation does not matter?

Fifth Graders are learning how to use iMovie spending time in the Innovation Lab.  They are paired with a group of one other student or two, and have been assigned either the Inca, Maya, or Aztec civilizations.  Each group will create a trailer from a template portraying the 8 characteristics of their respective civilization.  I can’t wait to see the finished products!
