We are going to be learning how to use Prezi this week during Connected Learning. Prezi is a great online tool to help you make a presentation. It's a bit like PowerPoint but it can do different things like zooming in. It's great to use if you have lots of photos or video to use and a little text.
Here is a video to help you get started on learning the basics:
This term in connected learning we are looking at native New Zealand. Before we get started there are a lot of new words we needed to be able to use and understand that relate to our topic. We talked about the words as a class and then 'researched' what the words meant. We used dictionaries and Google to find out more. We then created posters on Comic Life to put on the wall to use as a 'visual glossary' for us to refer to.
The poster had to include;
- The word
- The definition in our own words
- 3 sentences using the word that relate to our topic
- Images that relate to the word
- Other words that have a similar meaning
Check out our posters below and keep an eye on our connected learning page to see what we get up to next!
We are Harakeke - Room 11 at Tinwald School in Ashburton, New Zealand. Our class has 23 students from Year 5 and 6.
