The Second Graders are close to completing their Germs and Healthy Habits unit of study in technology class. As mentioned in a previous post, they took notes from an online science book created just for them. The second step towards a final project is having the students write a children's story to demonstrate their understanding of bacteria, viruses and fungi.
The students write the stories in their notebooks and do rough sketches of their illustrations. Their goal is to teach their readers about bacteria, viruses and fungi. They then use an art app on the iPad to draw their illustrations. The final step is to use the Explain Everything screencasting app to create digital stories. A future post will present some of the stories. For now, take a look at a few of the illustrations drawn using the Drawing Pad app.
