Symbiotic Relationship...Theater?

As our Ecology unit winds down students spent some time learning about symbiotic relationships. To show me, and the rest of the class what they learned, each group created a skit. All groups did a great job of keeping to the facts and incorporating some humor. Below are pics from their performances.

Kidblog

Recently I set up the students with Kidblog accounts. If you are unfamiliar with Kidblog, click here. What I love about Kidblog is that it can be completely moderated by the teacher. This means that nothing will appear on their blogs, posts or comments, without my approval. Most recently we posted on our favorite novels for the year. You can read those here. Below are pictures of students commenting on blog posts from a class in Kamrar, IA. Those posts can be read here. Students had a lot of fun reading their reviews and commenting on them. We were even able to pull up Google Earth and see where the students are located!
