2nd Grade: Bridges

The second graders have been studying and learning about bridges over the last several weeks.  As a culminating project each student chose one bridge to research and learn about.  They used PicCollage to place themselves on their famous bridge, imported their image into Thinglink and added tags with details about their bridge.  Students then wrote an I Am poem from the perspective of their bridge using Google Slides.  They added their poem to their Bridge Thinglink.  When you hover over the tag with their poem, click on the GOOGLE SLIDES in the right corner.  It will open a full size version of the poem so that you can read it.

2nd Grade: Biomimicry Commercials

After studying and learning about how inventors, engineers, and scientists are looking to nature for solutions to problems, the 2nd graders researched two animals and melded two adaptations to create their own invention.  They used DoInk Greenscreen to create a commercial advertising their product.  Enjoy!  I know I loved watching them write, practice, and create their commercials.  We have some budding advertisers in here.
