Getting “Tech” nical in 5th grade

 

Students in Mrs. Hart’s fifth grade class at Owls Head School have been working hard learning how to use technology, and having a blast doing it! Twice weekly this year they have participated in library/technology lessons on the Macintosh Laptops. Students have learned how to research a subject, and create a finished product, complete with a bibliography.  The first project was a double sided, tri-fold brochure about a famous scientist. They then used their research skills to create newsletters about historical events. They have also enjoyed quick lessons using their vocabulary words and creating a “Wordle”, word cloud. You can see their “Wordles” on the bulletin board outside the classroom.

In the pictures here students are presenting Keynotes, the Mac equivalent of Power Point, they created from what they have learned in their Science Unit on Oceans.
