5th graders use technology to help teach younger students

 

Fifth graders in Linda Meckem's class at Partridge Elementary recently completed a PBL (Project Based Learning) activity that focused on helping teach younger students their learning standards. The driving question was “How can we teach a lower grade level a new skill?”

 

Students chose fourth quarter learning standards from kindergarten, 1st or 2nd grades, created anchor charts as visual aids, wrote scripts and developed multi-media presentations. 

 

“Groups chose iMovie, DoInk Green Screen, Pow Toons and Kahoot! as their tools, and their imaginations took off!” Meckem said. “This was a multi-week project that will be shared with the lower grade level teachers at Partridge in order to incorporate technology, reading and math, and to build relationships with younger peers.
