At the beginning of the year I try to create a project that has a similar theme but can be differentiated across several different grades. This year? Selfies
This year Merriam-Webster (along with others) added Selfie to the dictionary. Through this project students not only expressed themselves creatively but also navigated through the folders on our network - a big skill that students often forget over the summer (ISTE Standards for Students 1 and 6).
2nd Grade - Used the Pop Art Maker on Big Huge Labs to create a Warhol-inspired selfie masterpiece Student Directions
4th and 5th Grade - Used Tagxedo to create a word cloud selfie that describe them Student Directions
