Our Animal Projects

We have completed our animal projects with the help of some 5th grade tech buddies. The students chose the pictures and placements of the objects. The 5th grade tech buddies helped with some of the accessibility issues, spelling words, and navigating the school's "common drive" to obtain the pictures. It has been a great, collaborative project. I look forward to doing more of these projects next year! We will continue to talk about animals (food, habitat, environment) as we wrap up this school year.

We hope you enjoy our projects!If you have a second or 2, I know the students would love to receive comments! Thanks in advance!

Kamaiya's Elephant Glog created with the help of Joey from 5th grade.

Kearia's Giraffe Glog created with the help of Maggie from 5th grade.

Malone's Kangaroo Glog  created with the help of Jeffery from 5th grade.

Jacob's Emperor Penguin Glog created with the help of Lucas from 5th grade.

  1. Cool I love glogster

  2. My 2nd graders did animal reports on their blogs last year, but I love how the 5th graders helped your students! Our school only goes up to 4th grade, but I think it would be a great idea to partner them up. Thanks for the great idea!
