Day 2 of 28 in the writing challenge.
Today I started my Grade 3s iLearning project on Australia, so I decided to do a little pre-testing on them to see what they already know. The first being to draw Australia freehand, which proved to be comical. Australia is hard enough to draw when we know what it looks like, so there were some interesting interpretations. The same could be said about the attempts to draw the flag. It was frightening the little knowledge the kids had of the States that make up our country.
But what was evident was how much these kids are going to learn through this unit, they are a sponge, ready to soak up the information that they will discover through themselves and each other. I can’t wait to see what they all come up with!
