3rd Grade: Zoom

The 3rd graders used their learning about the Big Ideas of Systems to create a Zoom research project.  The 3rd graders and I looked “read” through Zoom, a wordless picture book.  The kids realized that the truth is all in perspective.  We had a great Socratic Dialogue about it.  We also watched a video on YouTube called The Power of Ten to reinforce the idea of perspective.  The children then chose a system that they wanted to research.  They then had to look for a system within their system and research that as well.  They zoomed into their system 3 to 4 times, doing 3 to 4 mini-research projects.  After gathering their information, they used Prezi to put it showcase their learning and how the systems were nested within each other.
