READING: Unsolved Mysteries
The students are working in groups on an unsolved mystery. They had a list of mysteries which to select a topic that interested them. This entire project is technology based.
On Google Docs they can show you the Site and the Unsolved Mystery Project directions, links to get them started for their research, what the project needs to include, a rubric etc.
Then, they can show you how they collaboratively took notes and how they are now implementing the notes into their final project either a WEBSITE or SLIDE SHOW!
Part of the project, is using Newspapers.com, a site that we have a subscription to, to find a primary source about their subject as part of their presentation.
Also, they are trying to find an EXPERT to contact about their "mystery" to get information. We may even try to Skype!!!
Lastly, as we finish these.....I will send dates and times for parents to come see and here our awesome presentations!!!!!
