Our Wonderful World – 4th Grade Wonders!
The world is full of wonder, and humans have been cataloguing the Wonders of the World since ancient times. Our 4th graders had the opportunity to learn about the Wonders as an extension of their Social Studies unit on Ancient Greece. Each student collected information from print and digital sources, producing a research paper and 3-dimensional model of an Ancient, Natural, Medieval or Modern Wonder. To create the covers for their projects, the students used Google Maps to capture images of the site of the Wonders, and green screen technology to insert themselves into the scene. Truly wonderful!
