Social Studies Project Share-Out!

First trimester is over! Can you believe it!? It always seems to fly by. And with the trimester wrapping up so did our social studies unit focusing on Asia. 

After studying the different regions of Asia as a large group, each TLC student picked a specific country in Asia to study more in depth. Their final assessment was to create a project about their country to share what they learned about that country's culture, climate, and environment.

Once the projects were complete it was time for students to share their work with their TLC peers. 


In the past when students have shared their work we have met as a big group, but that doesn't always make sense due to large span of ages and grades we have in the TLC. So, the teachers, being the super smart educators that they are, decided to have the students meet in smaller age specific groups to share their work via zoom. It was a grand success.

 The format was similar to how we run book groups, with one teacher facilitating a group of three to four students on different islands.

Zoom is a great platform for students to share work because not only is the connectivity strong and reliable and can hold multiple participants...

BUT it also has a screen share feature where one participant can share what is on their computer screen with the rest of the group.

Students were able to share their brochures...

And their Ibooks...

And even their powerpoints!

As students shared their projects their teachers facilitated some conversation about the differences and similarities about the countries that they all presented on.

It was great having such small groups for these presentations because it allowed students plenty of time to really get to present all they learned about their countries...

And then their peers could stay engaged in the presentation and ask really thoughtful questions.

 Well done TLCers! Your projects were fabulous, informative, and beautifully created. You're wicked smart
