Third graders have spent the beginning of the school year in enrichment thinking about their place in this world. Geography and understanding sense of place is an important part of the third grade curriculum. This study also supports our enrichment goals of continuing to learn about ourselves while giving us a context for our passions and interests. I love beginning the year with this project because it gives students a chance to be creative and work in groups as we learn.
Students selected a place, and then worked in groups to show this place. Next the class used an iPad to film and create an iMovie. Below are the finished results! Students celebrate our place in his world and we hope you will enjoy their creations.
