Currently, sixth grade students are completing research about countries around the world. They are using an awesome database called CultureGrams. Students were able to select the country of their choice to complete the project. One student name Jordan decided to research the country Jordan! They have been finding information such about landforms in their country, the climate, government, and more. CultureGrams provides fantastic information about every country in the world, as well as the American states and Canadian provinces. It can be accessed at home with a username and password, both of which are listed on my blog. After the break, students will begin creating Google Slides presentations to showcase their findings.
Fifth grade students are currently in the middle of a research project focusing on a planet from our solar system. Students were able to choose the planet of their choice. We then used a database called Kids Infobits to find information about their chosen planets. Next, we used an amazing website run by NASA to find even more information. Following the winter break, students will begin to create a Google Slides presentation to share the information that they found.
All fourth grade students have been working on researching William Penn during library instruction. They used several sources from the database Kids Infobits. After completing the research, students began creating a Google Slides project using the information that they found. Many of them are getting close to being done and some are even adding images to make their presentations even better! If you would like to see your child’s work, ask them to log into their Google Drive account and check it out! Kids Infobits is a wonderful resource that all students can access both at home and at school. Usernames and passwords are needed, but I have them listed on my blog, under research links.
