My class’ new unit is focused on Earth Science.
One of the activities we are working on is our Earth’s Materials Glog project. My students are using books like Rocks and Minerals and Usborne Geographical Encyclopedia, as well as websites like http://www.kidsgeo.com/geology-for-kids/ and kid-friendly search engines like www.factmonster.com to find information about a material they chose. Some of the earth’s materials they have chosen are: clay, gold, granite, diamond, pearl, ruby and sapphire. When they finished with their research by the end of this week and then they will use http://edu.glogster.com to create a glog about their material.
