Six NETS-S Standards: Six Student Projects by Elizabeth Simmons

 

The goal of the attached investigation was to intertwine all NETS-S standards within 6 multi-disciplinary projects.  Over the course of one school year, my fourth graders and I collaborated with a partner school in the United Kingdom. We shared our wrok with our ePals, bringing collaboration into as many of our endeavors as possible. My students had access to emailing their ePals from home and from the classroom. The instant and regular sharing of news and information resulted in very strong bonds of friendship between the students.  This investigation was very successful.
