We used iPads and laptops to search google for information about the sun.
We learned how to do a google search and know to add the words 'for kids' to our search to help limit the information to information that is suitable for our age - this is a sneaky bit of coding used by google to help children use google.
We learned about scanning the text to decide if it is right level for our understanding - if it is too hard we can click on the back arrow and try another site.
We also learned to read a piece of information and think about what it means - then we had to tell our buddy what the idea was in our own words. When we could explain the idea in our own words we wrote it into our topic book.
I am very proud of the incredibly able children in our class. This was a tricky task - I expected I would be very busy helping the children - I was so wrong! The children were able to manage this task brilliantly and independently. I was so proud of every single child - they were all able to find suitable information using google and have all recorded ideas in their own words.
Great work Room 14.
