Watsons Tech Projects

5th graders from Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Pittman, and Mrs. Ruddock's classes recently completed a novel study of The Watsons Go to Birmingham-1963 by Christopher Paul Curtis.  

They created Prezis, Glogs, and a Google Time Trip to demonstrate the research they did on the 1960s and the Civil Rights Movement to add context to this historical fiction novel.

Here are the links to their Prezis & Glogs.  These links will only be active for the next 2 or 3 weeks, so check them out soon!

Natural Disaster Theater

Ms. Reagan's 4th grade class performed a Readers' Theater to enhance their science instruction.  Students who are sitting down are the anchormen in a news show asking the two reports about a California earthquake and a Hawaiian volcano eruption.  Two of the groups put on a commercial between reporting the separate events.
