Two computer projects you can introduce to your students and let them take off running! I have used these for several years with grades 4-6. They are a sure fire way to set your students sailing on highly engaging projects that they will love! I use them for my math and science classes but they can be adapted to any subject.
The first is a word and paint project where students learn by "doing", using Word and Paint programs on the computers in your classroom, in a computer lab and/or at home. They create numerous graphics of their own in paint and paste them into their word document. The second project is a powerpoint project where students take and/or upload photos in a 10 slide presentation. Examples, rubrics, shortcuts, and short how-to handouts are included.
Great for end of the year, lesson extension, gifted and talented, or anytime fun. Worried you are not computer savvy? Don't be- the students love to teach each other and the teacher what they know while gaining new skills.
