Welcome to April my Fantastic Third Graders!
For your animal research you will be using INFOhio.orgToday I want you to click on the word INFOhio.org, click on the K-5 tab, and using the resources you learned about today you will search your animal and see if there is anything you can use. If so we can print it today.

Today you are going to be grouped up into great working crews. Your crew will show if you can master the library. As we approach the end of your third grade year we want you to have some basic library skills needed to be successful library users. Your crew will be embarking on a great library Scavanger Hunt.1.) Come up with a name for your crew.2.) Choose a team leader.3.) The team leader needs to share the Google Doc with everyone on your crew. Click here to begin.4.) Each person on your crew will take specific questions.5.) Begin your hunt.**You will be using the library card catalog, Destiny, and INFOhio to answer these questions.6.) Once your crew has answered all questions you need to share your document with Mrs. Swisshelm. The first crew that completes all questions correctly will get a choice day in the next few weeks.

September/October Project:

We are learning what a book recommendation is and how it can help us find a "Just Right Book."
We are going to use Google Drive to create a book recommendation poster to promote reading throughout Summit. Please find a technology partner in the room that will be your "go to person" if you get stuck on anything throughout the project. We will be using the following link to access the form where we are going to design our poster. Mrs. Swisshelm will be showing you how to make a copy of this form. PLEASE do not enter anything on this form until you have made your own copy.
