Principal: Alice Hom


Modifications


I focused on a topic related to our current fourth grade curriculum. The topic was to explore about different spices that explorers hoped to find in their journeys via Internet research.

Instructional Objectives


Students Will:

  • Learn important technical vocabulary
  • Explore the use of search engines
  • Know how to make the most of their searches

Technology Integration

The Internet was utilized to help students explore an assigned spice. The entire unit was made possible through the use of technology.

Assessment


I assessed my students during open access computer periods by walking around each pair, being available for questions and by having a formal share at the end of each class.   I evaluated their notes taken while searching.

Tips for Teachers


It is a great unit for helping students learn how to narrow down their searches during research projects. It's great to have the kids explore the use of search engines.
