Year 2’s are studying plants in Science this Term. Started building 2 or 4 clipboards with curated images of flowers from different continents on http://www.clipix.com, for my lower ability students. The next will be a a collection of short videos with more advanced continental flower content, for my middle ability students. Finally, will be a collection of interactive websites where my higher ability students can investigate a variety of different plant life in their continental habitats.
I will place all of these boards as a smash-up on BLENDSPACE, and facilitate the activity in a collaborative learning setting, using the JIGSAW activity. VERY excited about facilitating this in 2wks time and I think the rest of my Y2 Team will really like it to. Will blog the link for BLENDSPACE once it’s done, and then blog about the lesson in 2wks time.
