Promoting Kindness through Infographics

As part of our civics unit, the students wanted to create signs they could hang around the school to promote kindness and make others happy. They worked in pairs to create infographics. Here are links to some of them.

Perimeter/Area Pal Stories

We have been working on perimeter and area. Students integrated art by creating their own perimeter/area pal, finding both the perimeter and area of their pal. Then, they got with a partner and wrote a story. Students used iPods to take photos for their story, then used Animoto to present. Here are a few of them.

Surprising all the Adults at the School - Pay it Forward

In class, we are learning about ways to be a responsible citizen and how one can fulfill their civic duty. Students worked together to brainstorm ways they could Pay it Forward. One of the ways was to surprise all the adults in our school with one of their favorite treats they had listed at the beginning of the school year for the office. Students had a blast delivering all the different treats, while bringing a smile to everyone's faces. All the students asked in return was for each adult to pay the kindness forward to someone else.

Students are helping to sort all the snack for each teacher.

Tone/Mood Skype

To work on tone and mood, we created songs, stories and photos for our pen pals in Mrs. Reinert's class in Illinois. They did the same. Then, students read their stories, performed their songs and showed their photos. Each class then tried to guess the tone and mood. The students were very engaged doing this.
