With our upcoming social studies fair in December, sixth grade students in Mrs. Ward’s classes have detailed instructions to follow and need an effective way to communicate both in and away from the classroom. With a Google Apps for Education account, Mrs. Ward created an invitation only blog for student access. In addition to the social studies fair directions and information, the blog allows students to post questions of Mrs. Ward and their peers, improve writing skills and collect feedback on their projects. In class, students use the sixth grade Google Chromebook cart, to quietly review the instructions and begin working through the specific procedures for the project.
The BFCCPS Social Studies Fair is scheduled to take place on December 14, 2012.
