Mighty Metals Showcase
Year 3/4R and 3/4C invited their parents in to showcase their learning across the topic. Activities included working collaboratively to create an Iron Man story on the iPad. The children used their iMovie backdrops and puppets and created freeze frame images to include in the story. They then showed their family members how to add in photos and different text to the story using features on the Book Creator app.
The second activity was to make a parachute. This enabled the children to explain what forces were in operation while the parachute was in operation.
The final activity was exploring magnetic forces. The children used a variety of magnets to move metal objects without touching them. The investigated and explained how and why magnets attract or repel objects.
A great day was had by all and the children are already looking forward to another opportunity to be able to show off their learning.
