(our WRDSB online library learning commons has some great resources that are primary friendly!*)
- Books (non-fiction)
- People - our families, experts (we can be experts too!)
- Movies (documentaries)
We each came up with a few specific questions about out topic and then started to research. Today we used the PebbleGo app on the iPads. It's such a great website with information that is at our level AND it can be read out for us with 1 click. Some of us couldn't find what we were looking for in PebbleGo, but found some great information using Britannica Elementary, another great website with primary friendly research.
After 20 minutes of researching and learning we came up with some new learning already! We wanted to share it with you, so we tweeted it out using our class twitter account: @Grade1Raptors and #wonderwednesday. If you're not following us on twitter yet, you can read about our learning below, but we'd love if you would follow us too! We have a lot more learning to do this year!
Wonder Wednesday Learning for January 20:
Katelyn: blind is when you are unable to see
Leah: Golden Retriever have 3 to 7 babies
Misha: The sun is a big star
Yuvraj: Video games are programs with computers
Cian: The triceratops is a leaf eater and 30 feet long
Ali Q. The blue whale is the longest mammal ever
Hayden: video games are cool
Khloe: Chihuahuas have 3-6 babies
Arianna: turtles lay eggs in the sand to keep them warm
Dominic: video games can be made by humans
Manush: Triceratops eat meat **We actually did a little more research about Triceratops after we noticed that we had different facts. We all found out that triceratops is actually a herbivore and eats only leafs (plants).
Thanks for following us on our Wonder Wednesday journey so far. There's so much more to come!
*Parents in our class: a note will be going home shortly that explains how you can log onto the WRDSB online library and use these same resources at home.
A special thanks to @MollyMeck and her class (@msMeck'sclass) for inspiring Mrs. vanRees to get started on Wonder Wednesdays!
