Technology Tips

  • I made a "flipchart" using food pictures for mystery riddles. They drag a clue then erase box to expose fruit.
  • I revealed the clues for the "Mystery Fruit" activity on the SMART Board and added a SMART Notebook video called Flowers and Seeds.
  • I made a flipchart for Activity 1 with food pictures for students to drag and drop. Teachers reported that they valued the connections this program makes to common core by integrating math and science as well as the writing opportunities. Teachers noted that it was very effective to have the information presented in multiple ways, such as through the use of color.
