Today we experimented with the Drawing Pad App. (This is a paid app . )
Students were given a brief overview of the app, by projecting the iPad using airserver onto the IWB. They then went and created their own Christmas drawings.
Today we made Christmas Decorations- Snowmen and Reindeer baubles. First the children painted 3 fingers white. They then pressed these around a bauble. This was then put out onto the bench to dry.Next they painted their thumb and made 2 thumbprints on their other bauble.
It took about 2 hours to dry, so after lunch we brought them back into the classroom and decorated them. Faces were drawn on both the snowmen and the reindeer. Hats were cut out and glued, red glitter noses were added and then sparkly snow.
Finally ribbon to enable the baubles to be hung from their Christmas tree at home.
The way plants obtain nutrients is part of our learning this term. What better way to learn than by experimenting.
What was needed:
- a white flower
- food dye in various colours- red, blue, green and yellow
- clear plastic container- in this case a glass
The students were divided into 5 groups. Each group had an iPad to document the journey their flower was going to embark upon. Predictions were made as to what the students thought might happen and photos were taken every hour to document the change. They then used the Educreations app to show the timeline of the flower’s journey.
