Goal

The goal of this project is to introduce my students to energy conservation. Through the use of iPad minis, students will complete webquests and create a PowerPoint. 

 

What will be done with my students

Students will work with partners to access webquests, such as Energy Quest. This webquest quest discusses the use of energy and how we can conserve energy everyday. They will also utilize websites such as EnergyStarKids.org. This is an interactive site allowing them to see and find ways to conserve energy at home. By having access to these sites students will gather information and take notes, as well as complete a webquest. After students have gathered the information needed, they will proceed to make a PowerPoint on the iPads. The goal is for students to use the information they have gathered to teach others about ways to conserve energy. They will show ways to conserve energy at home, as well as in the school or community. The unit will end with a presentation of their project on their iPad onto our classes' SmartBoard. 

 

Benefits to my students

The benefit of this project is that students will have first-hand knowledge of energy conservation. Students will take this knowledge to teach other students, as well as family members how they can easily conserve energy at home and school. Students will create a presentation to show what they have learned throughout the unit. 

 

Describe the Students

My second grade students are a remarkable group of kids. I have a class consisting of ESE, Gifted, and general education students. Using technology to enhance lessons is a great tool for the kids. The hands-on, visual, and auditory capability of the iPads will reach all students' learning style.
