Flying Penguins & Biometrics: A fun day in the media center

Posted on: April 12, 2008

Some of the best lessons are those spur of the moment, just for fun lessons that really get kids involved and thinking. As a 4th grade class was beginning to identify topics and resources for their annual rainforest Research/Powerpoint projects they watched the amazing BBC Documentary about flying penguins who fly from Antartica to the rainforest.

They shared what they saw and answered the question, “Why did we look at this?” They got it! A perfect lesson for introducing kids to age appropriate resources and the potential pitfalls of Internet research.

3rd grade students began the process of enrolling their fingers in a biometric check-out system. They are so excited!
