If you’re here, don’t forget to check your Google Classroom for Media. I’ve been posting there also…

3rd graders – your google classroom has a science video with a kahoot quiz, a chance to record a video on flipgrid, a digital breakout box, and a few other things also.

2nd graders – your google classroom has a science video with a kahoot quiz, a chance to record a video on flipgrid, plus some links to a few different zoos and an aquarium.

1st graders – your google classroom has a science video with a kahoot quiz, the link to a SAFARI, a video of me reading a story, and a few other links.

On the days when you do Media at home, you can look here on my blog (make sure you check out the other pages) and you can check in google classroom – I will be updating both places ๐Ÿ™‚
