The fifth graders created six word memoirs.
Check them out. They are amazing.
For the past three years, I have had my fifth graders reflect on their six years at our school as part of our culminating experiences in the library program. I am always impressed by their thoughtfulness and creativity. Last year, the students used Animoto to present their memoirs. This year, I decided to embed citing sources and a number of useful web skills into the project by using Google Slides and Britannica ImageQuest. The project took two forty-five minute classes. Here are the Step by Step Directions for the project. Since music cannot be embedded into Google Slides, I played an instrumental version of a song from my Google Music playlist during the show. You can link to the song on the first slide.
