2 groups learned about spiders and one group for each bats and owls.
Students started off filling in a graphic organizer using some easy readers and PebbleGo. I also found a book about spiders on Reading A-Z. Each group chose a note-taker and got to work.
After completing their research, students worked with me to create a book using the app Book Creator. They learned to find images on Google Images and crop them if necessary. Students were able to type their own text and add the pictures chosen to the page. After the book was completed, it was sent to Apple to be published in the iBookstore. Our technology department also converted the book into a PDF file and a YouTube file.

My students were SO excited to see their work published. This was a fun project, and students learned a lot!
I'll be back soon to share our next project on healthy eating. We are well on our way, but that project is not finished yet.
