For the second straight year, Grade Six students have produced stupendous work incorporating research from all core subjects.
They produced incredible Pecha Kuchas* for the Q2 performance task. Their video presentations are between 10-20 slides, and the narration on each slide is between 10-20 seconds long. Their task was to research the impact of certain products on food chains and groups of people.
Situation: The UN has raised the question of whether or not certain products should stay on the market due to their questionable effects on the environment and people. They have appealed to certain NGOs for their help in determining positive and negative impacts on the environment and people, so that they can make an informed decision.
I.T. Connections: Students learned about Creative Commons and how to search Flickr and Google Image Advanced Search for Creative Commons photos. Students were encouraged to use Compfight to find appropriate photos.
