QR Codes 
QR Codes:
We will be using the order of operations and QR codes to collect and prepare and emergency survival kits in the event of a zombie apocalypse. The students will watch a video prepared by the CDC on a zombie invasion. Then they will be asked put into teams of 2 or 3 to complete different order of operation problems. They will use an ipad to check their answers which will be in the form of QR Codes. The QR codes will give the students the location of the next problem they need to work and what item to collect from the station. When they have completed all the problems or time has run out, they will come back to the room and we will go through a scenario to see if they have collected all the materials they need to survive the apocalypse. The team with the most items will win a prize!

 Slides
Students were given a note card with a Vocab word. On the back was the group they were assigned and the slide #. Students logged into Google Drive and accessed a folder Malara shared with them. They clicked on their assigned presentation and went to their assigned slide to type in a definition, a sentence using the word and a picture of the word. The students created a collaborative project one slide at a time.
The teacher was able to click on student's slide to project them on the screen and check their work or aid them in completing the objective.

TiNspire Calculators Students will have 2 weeks to create a piece of Conic Art in the TINspire Calulator. Your art must include at least 10 conic equations including 3 circles, 3 ellipses, and 3 parabolas. The additional equation can be the conics of your choice. You can also use any linear equations to complete your artwork above the 10 required equations.

•Create a poster depicting different island types (continental, barrier, oceanic, volcanic, atoll and reef)
Students will use Microsoft Word to produce a poster with pictures representing each of the six types of islands on their graphic organizer. They will use call-out boxes to identify the islands and how each is formed. They must incorporate Word Art and page or shape color.

4th 
iPad Cart Students created projects using an app called EduCreations.
In groups of four, students drew food chains, typed information, audio recorded their voices, and imported pictures in the app to create a summary over their food chain. Using information they had learned about Food Chains and Webs, students used a checklist made by the teacher to create their presentation. Students then viewed each others projects by watching the projects as videos.

PowerPoint

We were finishing up a unit on Energy Resources and the students culminating activity involved creating a wind turbine that could lift 10 pennies a distance of 30 cm. The students worked in pairs to complete the project and we video taped their classroom presentations. The students were then asked to create (as partners) a power point that would explain their project (materials, cost, etc...) and embed the video from their classroom presentation onto a slide in their power point. By saving their videos to a folder on my website, they embedded their own videos and then saved the entire power point to their h-drive and we will be sharing these power points in class on Fridays for the remainder of the school year. ( A great review of this unit for the remainder of the year.)

Wireless Mouse 1. Read "Pete the Cat Four Groovy Buttons" and review subtraction.
2. Have students work subtraction problems with Pete mat and buttons.
3. Using a lesson in Smart Notebook: Have students come to carpet and model how to use the mouse to make pictures go away, switch to pen, and write numerals.
 
The students will use a cordless mouse to solve subtraction problems on a smart lesson. They will click on pictures to "take away" and write the answer with the mouse.
 B. TrochezPre-K  Computer Lab/CartTo teach where apples come from and how we get to eat them

I will put the scholastic website onto the screen and it will read a book about apples. At the end of the book I will ask student questions about the book.
We will then taste different apples (green, yellow, red) and decide which our favorite apple is.
We will then graph our favorite apple using the http://nces.ed.gov/nceskids/createagraph/default.aspx?ID=87e22a6466a44ab4a54508e07feb3d07

 BYOT
Computer/Projector
Google Earth
Students research their location on "Geoguessr.com" (There really is no "r" in the website!)
-Geoguessr uses Google Earth/Maps images and students control the mouse and use their surroundings to determine where they are located in the world! Super fun, and the kids LOVE It!

As students come into the class, they grab a "Geoguesser" Location Sheet that has 4 location boxes on there. Load the website and begin! Students use the images and surroundings (i.e. vegetation, buildings, billboards, signs, stores, etc) to determine where they are in the world. The website then allows your to "pin" you guess and it tells you how far off the actual location you were.

Movie Maker 
Students used Touchcast to record videos and interviews with professionals. Exported those videos to their Google Drives and downloaded them to a computer to edit in Movie Maker. They added Titles, music, transitions, voice overs and credits. Then exported the movie back to drive to share with Mrs. Barnett to show to the student body.
