Snowman Exchange

Build a snowman, type a description, and see if a student from another class can re-create your snowman based upon the description you wrote. First, build your snowman using the Virtual Snowman Builder. You can choose any of the parts except for extras. Give your snowman a name and include your own name underneath. Print a copy.

Next, use Stationary Studio to type your description. Use the snowman template under Holidays & Seasons. Have a teacher check, save, then print.

Once finished you will exchange your snowman with a student from another class and see how accurately he/she can re-create it.

Below is a sample description:

Makerspace Stations (K-3)

A makerspace is an area where you can design, build, and play using materials. The library has been set up as a makerspace this week to give you the opportunity to think like an engineer and try out some new materials that were purchased. There are five stations set up for you to explore. Some of the new materials you’ll use are the ProBot and Kibo robots. Have fun!

Animal Talk

Present your animal research using the ChatterPix Kids app. After you finish finding facts, write a script from the perspective of the animal. Practice reading the script, making sure it can be read in 30 seconds or less. Then, search for an image of the animal on the iPad. The image needs to be front-facing with a closed mouth. Next, import the image into the app, add the mouth, and record.

iLearn Continents & Oceans

Locate the continents on the iPads using Google Earth. Then, test your knowledge with the names of the continents and oceans using the iLearn app. Review the 7 continents and 5 oceans by tapping the Learn button. Then, see how many you can identify in one minute by playing the game, or take the test for the untimed version. You can also try the Map Puzzles app if you have extra time.

Mealworm Life Cycle

Save and share with a classmate.
