Every so often, teachers reach out to me for enrichment activities for reading, math, science, or social studies. This is an activity I put together for 1st grade students and is modeled after Jerry Palotta's Who Would Win series. The grade level is 1:1 (one device per student) Chromebooks, so I designed this in Google Slides. The final page will have a Blabberize (Chatterpix could be an alternative if you have iOS devices, where the winning animal explains why they won the battle. A few resources students will use for this project are PebbleGo, Bookflix, TrueFlix, and Kiddle.
If you would like a copy of the Google Slides file, please let me know.
I also created a graphic organizer where students can record their findings.
After almost a year in the making, my ILA E-ssentials article "Sharing Student Writing with the World" was released today! This article shares how you can publish student work and provide students an authentic audience outside the four walls of your classroom. It is free for International Literacy Association members, and non-members can purchase it for $4.99. Note: All proceeds go to ILA, I do not receive any compensation for this article.
