FPS staff report

Malvern Elementary students spent two weeks traveling the world and didn’t leave the classroom.
Second grade students were paired with a fourth grade partner to learn about different landforms around the world. Using Google Maps and various web tools, students created digital postcards, photo babbles, and kept a blog. Each day the pairs had a different task regarding the landforms. Students used the blog to post questions regarding a specific area and other students had to find and post the answers.
Students visited Hawaii, Madagascar, the Grand Canyon, Mt. Rushmore, Mammoth Cave and other areas. They were also able to research and summarize locations of their choice.
The students wrapped up the project by making homemade baking soda volcanoes.
