Last year I went out on a limb and decided to do Slowmation project with my Grade 2 class. It was quite risky as I’d never tried it with students that young before but with some scaffolding, it turned out to be one of the best projects I did with any of my students in the 2010-2011 academic year. The girls had a blast and got so much out of it. They a chance to review their knowledge in a tactile and verbal way and really solidify their understanding of the topic they were studying in class, water cycles.
As the end of the year was so busy, I forgot to share the video with everyone and when I was talking about the videos over the weekend at the amazing ‘The Network Educator‘ professional develop course, I realized I had forgotten to post up the students videos. So here it is, finally, given the credit it truly deserves.
