Multimedia project

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.


  1. I like the idea of you addressing health standards, since we don't have a lot of time to address those. I look forward to seeing your project and possibly being able to use it with my first graders, too.

    Making the Glogsters takes it to the next level. I love Glogsters, but have not attempted to have the students make them, yet. I'm interested to hear how it goes. Sounds great!

  2. I really like how you are going to work on a way to fit health in to the day. I feel like that is one subject that does not get address very much. While reading your post i thought right away of the video the magic school bus where they shrink and explore the body. I can't wait to see how it turns out.I havn't become very familiar with glogster yet so i can't wait to see how first grade does with it.
    I also really like how you are letting the classes help you decide what is important facts. It sounds awsome and can't wait to see it.
