Technology and Science

So prior to Spring Break, I was able to collaborate once again with the first grade team at my school on a science project that the students were working on. They are studying animal habitats, and we were able to devote Technology time to learning more about animals in their assigned habitat. We used Pebblego.com. First, I modeled use of the site so everyone knew how to navigate the site to get the information they were seeking. Students were given a worksheet they needed to complete and while modeling, I demonstrated to students where they could find the information they needed for their assignment. I showed students how to find their specific animals (and provided additional support to those few (3-4) that required it) and let them have at it. All students came away with some information; many completed the worksheet and a few were able to draw pictures of their animals. Certainly not very high-tech but it got the job done!
