During a recent Project Lead the Way lesson, second graders in Barbara Haining’s class at Mills Pond Elementary School had to design different structures using just popsicle sticks. Using the grooved sticks, the students created rural and urban structures. The lesson was part of an English language arts and social studies unit on the three community types: rural, urban and suburban.
With the support of our newly appointed secondary instructional technology specialist Michelle Manning, sixth graders in Rita D’Amato’s class at Great Hollow Middle School participated in a digital escape room. Mrs. D’Amato created an Egypt Bitmoji Classroom and had the students use Kami and Google Slides to help her escape.
