Fourth graders have been studying regions in their regular classrooms. They will have a chance to put their new geographical knowledge to the test as they participate in Mystery Skype. In Mystery Skype, our class video conferences with another class. The classes ask each other yes/no questions to determine the other class’s location. Students use logic to formulate questions and listen to answers carefully. They are very excited.
Fifth graders are commemorating their years at Lawrence by creating a Google slide show of people and events that are meaningful to them. After brainstorming a list of ideas and filling out a planning template, they will type in the text, add images, and finally add special effects to their presentations. It is a bittersweet time for our oldest students.
