Research Skills
A computer station was often set up as a PebbleGo research station during reading. Students read, listened and completed notes and graphic organizers.
Students practiced reading comprehension for a purpose!
"Field Studies"
We started BIG!
Those flagship species are so much fun!
How can we make a difference here in Virginia?
What are our native animals?
How are they similar or different?
Where do we see these animals?
How is the community dependent?
Three Lakes Park
The students often talk about their afternoon and weekend trips to Three Lakes Park and Nature Center where they observed native species.
Make third grade science content meaningful to students by giving them an authentic task that reaches outside the school walls.

The Idea
Students created online animal guides using Instablogg.
Then we made them MOBILE!
Students used their choice of
to engage the audience.
QR codes were generated and put by the exhibits.
