As we speak my classroom is bustling with excitement. The students have been reading about penguins this week and are now working in collaborative groups to gather research about 4 different kinds of penguins. They brainstormed their own list of questions they wanted answers to and got to work using the kid friendly search engine, kidrex.org. Students will gather info and then choose their own form of assessment to show off their learning. They can choose any creative medium they want to present their information. Some will create posters, while others will use apps, and Web 2.0 tools. I cannot wait to see what they come up with. 21st century, project based learning at its finest.
