LES second graders present Winter Olympics research project
February 11, 2014… Gone are the days of basic reading, writing and arithmetic. Instead, Liberty second-graders are immersed in current events, English language arts and technology, all while collaborating within their class and with students in the adjacent second grade room.
The class research project, part of the LES second grade curriculum, incorporated all three aspects, with all students working together to produce “Winter Olympics 2014 Sochi, Russia.”
Using carefully selected websites, books and articles, the children worked in teams of two to collect, organize and present a 22-slide PowerPoint presentation about the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.
While the teachers acted as the "editors in chief" to ensure that the basic mechanics were in place, the students were responsible for the organization, layout,design, research and writing. Students followed the writing process (writing, editing and revision) to create the text of the presentation and online research using Google and other search engines was conducted under the watchful eyes of their teachers. Thanks to LES Computer Teacher Ms. Pinter, students put their basic foundational computer skills to work typing, opening and closing files, copying and pasting text and adding images to create the final presentation.
“It was a learning experience–for all of us,” said LES Second Grade Teacher Joan Paddock. “From collecting the information to the finished product, the students were responsible for quite a bit of higher-level thinking and organization. They are so proud of this project, and they should be! We loved watching them and seeing the enthusiasm, creativity and teamwork. We are ready to watch and enjoy the Olympics now!”
The classes of Mrs. Eisenberg, Mrs. Wilhelm and Mrs. Paddock were all involved in the project, which can be viewed at the link below. Congratulations to all of the students and teachers involved for sharing this informative, educational and well organized presentation!
