I have decided to do a project within the Health standards since it is a topic that we do not get much time to explore and also because there is little information in PICASSO (Cobb County's site that addresses standards). I will be working with 1st grade and some of what we do will be whole group and then broken down to small groups of 5 or 6 to complete a presentation to give to their class. We will be examining the muscular and skeletal systems and how they help the body work. We will watch several videos together and decide as a class what are the most important facts or information that needs to be presented. Three groups will work on the skeletal system and 3 will work on the muscular system. The small groups will be allowed to do further research with the help of the teacher. Students will design posters on Glogster to present information, first to their own class, then to another first grade class. I was thinking they would import a picture of the system they are working on and add labels as well as video to explain what they have learned.I am open to ideas and suggestions.
