I used my own photos to make a slideshow of “What do people do in the Winter?” I added captions and music.
This would be a part of our first grade Weather Watchers unit where the children learn about he seasons. It would be even better to set the children loose with iPads to take pictures of the winter and then use those pictures for a slide show. What people do is only a small part of knowing about the seasons. It could be expanded to more information. I can see creating slideshows as a great way to review or summarize learning in many different areas. I was thinking of making one as they brainstorm all the strategies they use when they come to a tricky word for reading. I think a visual of the variety and great number of tricks they have up their sleeves would be another way to remind and encourage students to use all they know.
