My Students

As a 6th grader, this is a year of many firsts! One of those ‘firsts’ is having Social Studies as a daily class. Therefore, it's crucial to capture their attention and build the foundation to create a life-long passion and a curiosity about social studies, geography and history.

My students are eager learners who excel with technology based learning.

Our town is full of students who crave opportunities to learn about the world outside their town, state, country and continent!

My Project

The iPads will allow the students to work collaboratively while discovering and visiting locations around the world. The iPads will be used to access several free apps like Nat Geo, Fotopia, Google Earth, etc. The iPads will allow all of my students to access the geography curriculum.

My students will use the iPads to travel the world without leaving Billerica!.

They will see and interact with places, and people from around the world. The iPads will provide my students with another option to explore our world beyond their textbook (and use search engines like Google to immediately answer their questions or define new words/terminology to satisfy their curiosity)
