Spectacular Solar Systems

Can anyone say: “We are loving this!”?!

Our Solar System theme has simply evolved thanks to the use of iPads in the classroom.

The idea: The learners are learning all about Solar Systems. We will attempt a cross-platform project – designing PowerPoint Presentations using media created on the iPad, and then uploading our completed projects to Kidblog.

The learners had to source the following facts about their planet of choice:

Colour, size, moons, time to orbit the sun, rings, position in the Solar System and three interesting facts.

We used the iPads to search for pictures of our planets which we saved to our camera roll. Our pictures were then imported to PicCollage and we created the most beautiful collages!

This coming week: We are busy creating iMovies and basic layouts for our PowerPoint Presentations. Check back soon to view our completed projects!
