Mrs. Mobile’s 4th grade students and I recently completed their Landforms Project using Pixie2. The activity included construction of a landform of the student’s choice combined with a writing element presented in an multimedia format.
It was great to see the “choice” that students were able to have in the process. Mrs. Mobile’s students were able to choose the landform they wanted to research and were able to choose how they would “voice” their report. Some decided to go the “news report” route, some created haikus, some wrote songs, and a few wrote their report from the point of view of the landform.
