Creating is the Best Form of Understanding...

To go along with our learning about Ancient Egypt, we created plays based on a topic about Ancient Egypt. Students were put in groups of 3 and given a topic. They did a little research and then wrote a play about their topic. Today we made backdrops and costumes. It was great seeing the groups present their plays. I was so impressed with the information that each group "taught" in their play. Here are the first of them, more to come tomorrow.

We have been working on researching an animal and then writing about what we learned. The final piece is to make a Digital Book. Here is one of the first ones done... Way to go Connally! This was created with the Book Creator App. Connally will now be a trainer to help others as they work to create their books. It is all about collaboration and team work!
