Grade 1, QR Codes & Research

Online research with Grade 1 students is tricky! To learn more about landmarks in Alberta, a couple of our grade 1 classes decided to create their own website and then use iPads to link to certain pages.

The task the students had was to find out more about their chosen landmark. Once chosen they would get an iPad, connect to the internet, and then use QRafter scanner to scan the poster for their landmark. Once at the website they would write two facts about that landmark.



Once their facts are written we will then create postcards in Comic Life to print out or send home to their parents.

Math & iPad - Skitch Number Sentences

Today I finished up a project with a grade 1 class and we had a little time left at the end of the period, so we decided to do a quick task using Skitch (an amazing and must-have free app). We used Lego to create number sentences and Skitch allowed us to easily mark up the image and document our work.

Once finished, the images were saved to the camera roll then next time (we will do this again) we will share all finished and saved images via AirDrop to the teacher's iPad which can then be saved to a computer then uploaded to D2L or the AkkermanLC site

What a great and easy-to-complete task!
