Here it is….The Student Chat Spot!

I am creating the student chat spot so that you can communicate with one another using the blog. Please remember whatever you post here everyone can read and it should be appropriate. All comments come to me first to approve so if you do not see your comment below, it’s because I haven’t approved it yet, or it wasn’t appropriate for everyone to read!

While we’re out of school over winter break- you may find this to be a good place to keep in touch. Also, remember that Tiphaine checks our blog some too! Maybe she will write to you here!

Happy Blogging!!!!

How To Videos!

We have been studying the ancient civilizations of Greece and Rome. Students were asked to complete project proposals to research, construct, create, and share some of their knowledge. I have a class full of little engineers because all of them were interested in creating a replica of ancient architecture.
They were quite creative and showed great teamwork in collaborating with peers. Once they finished their projects they were eager to share them.
Enjoy the videos posted below to see how they went about constructing Roman architecture.

After you watch the video clips below, please vote for your top 2 favorites using the poll to the side. Also, feel free to make constructive comments with “I like…” or “I wish…” to share your thoughts.
Enjoy!
