Project 3: The Fabulous Friendship Club
The class will be writing paragraphs describing interesting places and activities where they live including information such as time zones, climate, land masses, location, environment, natural resources, and historical heritage. They will then post by E-mail to the homepage of the friendship club. The students can keep track of the various communities and countries involved in the project.
This project will fit into our Language Arts, Social Studies, and Computer Studies programs. The children can tell somebody else where we are found in the world, use time zones, and learn about the global community.
As part of their language program they will write, revise, edit, and prepare the documents to send to another class by E-mall. They will then publish on the homepage of the Fabulous Friendship Club and this information will then be accessible to the world.
The intended learning outcomes of this project re: Technology Educators will be:
One of the main outcomes of this project will be to see how well the students can locate the various places in an atlas or on a world map. They can read about other cultures and thus get a better understanding of other parts of the world. It will provide the children the opportunity to travel to various parts of the world and help them realize the worth of their own community while seeing the value of others'.
