Sixth Grade- Xtranormal Projects
Students created animation videos using Xtranormal.com. Students wrote scripts that included ten vocabulary words (integrating Technology and Language skills). They were given creative freedom to pick their characters, settings, voices, and camera angles. Since the program is web based, students were able to work on the project at home.
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!
