Mini Pecha Kucha

Sixth graders gave an oral presentation featuring 10 slides and talked about each slide for 15 seconds each. During the presentation, the slides advanced automatically, it was very important for students to keep pace with the presentation. 

Their topics for  their Pecha  Kucha was their own choice, the only criteria was that it had to be something that was of deep  and  sincere  interest. Their Pecha  Kuchas were fun and entertaining for the audience (all members of 6th grade class). Preparing for it was a lot of work for the speaker, and like in any successful live performance, the speaker had to practice adequately ahead of time. 

Bravo Sixth Graders! Your Pecha Kuchas were terrific!

MinecraftEdu - E-Period Update
We introduced MinecraftEdu (Creative Mode) as an elective for Grades 6-8 this year.
Our first project was to build our school. We designed it as in interactive, "living" enviroment, that connect students, teachers and parents in a new way. As you walk through the school and into the classrooms, teleport blocks are connected to current lessons built in Minecraft.
Examples:
Social Studies - The Giza Plateau, Monuments of England, The Jamestown Colony and Plymouth Plantation.
ELA - The Hunger Games Arena - built with selected re-enactments through first person screen recordings.
Science - The Cardiovascular System, in the form of a rollercoaster though a large scale "Steve".
