Third Grade Presentations of National Monuments to Mrs. Blakemore's Fifth Grade

Third grade students from Mrs. Greer's class visited Mrs. Blakemore's fifth grade class today to do oral presentations on National Monuments. This was an extension from story they had in reading.

I think that creating reading extensions make the stories much more interesting and allows the students to internalize the information better. Don't miss the video below. Please forgive the loudness, the students were nervous.

I didn't catch the names of the two students who were presenting but I think they did a really good job. This is another superb example of using technology to capture an event and share it with a worldwide (being in New Zealand I guess it qualifies as pretty much the other side of the world)audience.
