The third graders have been working on creating something out of plastic. To introduce this project, we watched the videos below while running a backchannel on TodaysMeet.
Driving Question: What product can your group create by re-using plastic to reduce plastic waste in the environment?
Students are placed in small groups and given a project planning sheet where they can sketch their idea and think through the supplies they will need. They determine what they will bring from home and what they need me to supply. As the groups work on their project, they document each step by taking a picture with the iPod Touch. When they have completed the project, they will use the StoryRobe app on the iPod Touch to create a video of the process. The videos will be uploaded to my TechNeckHowTo channel to share globally. Students are instructed to find the embed code of their video and post it to their blog.
Here is a list of other sites and videos containing ideas of how to re-use plastic:
