First Grade uses Digital Photography to create Symmetry!
First graders used digital cameras to create Symmetry projects. Students have been learning about symmetry in their classes. They took the cameras around the school in search of things that represented symmetry. Once they had their pictures, they navigated through our network to view them. They printed the best picture. Next, students cut the picture in half, pasted it to another piece of paper, and drew the missing piece which created symmetry. Students had fun using a multitude of skills to complete this project. They used their math skills, technology skills, and art skills to demonstrate what they have been learning. They did a great job!
Ninth graders researched famous cases of plagiarism and used Myebook (a virtual on-line book) to present their findings. Students also presented the ebook to their peers. Standing in front of anyone can be terrifying. Students present their projects often to build confidence.

Third Grade Searches on the Internet
Students searched the Internet using a variety of search engines such as: Google, Yahoo, Fact Monster, and Infoplease.com to find four facts about their animal. Students used their critical thinking skills to find the correct information about their animal. They copied and pasted the information into a Microsoft Word document and cited sources. Students also inserted a picture from the Internet, resized it and used text wrapping too. Some students used WordArt to create the title and name for the project. They did a great job!
