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.
Learn important technical vocabulary
Explore the use of search engines
Know how to make the most of their searches
was utilized to help students explore an assigned spice. The
entire unit was made possible through the use of technology.
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
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.
