Westward Expansion G5

Grade 5 explored the Westward Expansion during Social Studies and reported back to the rest of the class. The teacher gave students an objective sheet including a Driving Question and parameters. The students came up with ways they would like to present the information to the rest of the class. Depending on the tool they wanted to use, they formed their groups. This was an excellent way to give the students a choice and have them engaged in their research and presentations. We were so proud of the different and creative ways these students shared their information. Some students chose #ThinglinkApp as the best way to represent their findings, others created a poster, yet others made newspapers in #PagesApp, or presentations in #KeynoteApp and one group created a skit. Above are some different outcomes.
