WELCOME BACK TO THE BLOG TO THE GRADE 5′s and WELCOME GRADE 6′s to the LEARNING LEGENDS BLOG!

The Grade 5/6′s have jumped straight into an integrated project about Australia.  The aim of this project is to collectively make an interactive timeline that we can share with our grade, the school, and the readers of our blog.

As we step back in time and find out what Australia was like in the past, our research task has two components. The first is to create two slides to go on to our interactive timeline that we are going to create using a website called: Whenintime

We are going to create an image using either the computer or drawing to represent your event, as well as a slide as the visual slide that we will see on the timeline.  This slide will then have a drop down box which is where our research about our event/person will be collated .  We will also make a short 1 minute presentation that will accompany our slide on the timeline. This presentation may take any form, interview, radio broadcast, dramatization, role playing the person, a song, poem, Claymation, or Kahootz.

Please visit the Sites For Learning  tab at the top to access all the research sites we will use.
