Hedgies are great detectives!!
Over the past few months, students in 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade have been digging into various research projects through the Media Center.Second graders, using the iPad app Inspiration, compared and contrasted two nonfiction texts on the same topic and created a template in Inspiration inputting their data and inserted graphics directly related to their topic.Third grade students soared through the universe and investigated the planets of our Solar System and fourth graders are beginning to work on researching Native American life and will use their prior knowledge of nonfiction text features to produce newspaper articles about their topics. First graders have been having a great time with small group book clubs thanks to a great partnership with Holly Springs Public Library's "Book Club Kits for Kids" program. It has been such a productive and exciting first semester!
