Name that State Gameshow! Your Hosts: The Fourth Graders!

The fourth graders produced their own movies to see how well YOU know your New England states!

First, they collaboratively researched their states.  Secondly, each group of students wrote their scripts together. Thirdly, they decided on a green screen background, and lastly, they used the DoInk app to film one another, encouraging expression in their voices.

From beginning to end, so proud of their efforts!  Fourth graders can do it all!!

Now let's see how YOU do in their gameshow!

Second Grade - US Landmarks

Second graders are studying some of the US Landmarks!  We took a virtual field trip on Google Earth, made these collages and are studying the landmarks in detail to prepare for a green screen performance.  Have a question about a landmark?  Ask a second grader!
