|The students got excited and share their video links.|
|I allowed the students the choice on how they wanted to|
organize their research: file folder, sticky notes,
xerox notes, index cards and rubric.
|This was fun to see the open file folder with notes and|
laptop along with using their iPod. If you look
closely you can see the start of a koala wonder page.
|One of the students found a graph to support their|
research and earn some extra credit. Their word
list is above the graph on the right.
A teacher's reflection: As I look back on these photos and think about how far I have come in allowing my students to have choice in their topic as well as their final presentations. They are thinking and writing at a higher level because they wrote focused research questions with Bloom's verbs which pushed their research beyond the standard list of facts and finally the integration of 21st Century skills. I am very proud of their hard work and effort. I can't wait to share them with you in a few weeks.
