The Planets get Pages!

So far two science classes have now used iWeb to create social software pages for the planets. It went very well. The kids did a great job and really showed both creativity and a good grasp of the subject.

There are some great quotes in there. One of my favorites was “I guess my life started out after that huge bang . . .” I also liked that Saturn’s secret shame was jewelry.

I’d recommend checking them out-

    These were very cool! I like how they integrated facts in a very creative way. What grade level did them? How long did it take? Did they work in groups?

    K Bosh-

    Thanks! It was neat to see it work so easily. There were virtually no technical problems and they seemed to enjoy it. I do need to work on getting them to loosen up for the presentations though.

    This was an 8th grade assignment and they worked in pairs.

    They spent about 2.5-3 hours over two days on the project in class.

    […] I hope those of you who do read this blog will end up coming over to the new place. I’d like to see you there and I’ve got a post up already showing off some of the work the students did on the planet pages. It’s great stuff. […]
