After the building of our communities, students have been able to apply our mathematics learning to recording data of their buildings. They have been measuring different dimensions of the buildings such as height and perimeter. Later students compared 2D and 3D shapes and were able to make a 3D version of their community through a graphic design computer program.
The grade 3's have been practicing their Spanish skills describing and giving directions around their communities. They have been learning vocabulary around describing objects and buildings. Students have also been practicing giving directions walking around their communities, explaining how far to walk, which direction to go, and where to turn.
Using iMovie, the students created mini advertisements for their communities. The goal was for them to use as much Spanish as possible and ultimately learn how to navigate this video creation app on the iPads. Students also learned how to create QR codes to share their videos.
