ThingLink's use as a Science Project

Benjamin Franklin by Joseph-Siffred Duplessis.jpg

In thinking about ThingLink and the many ways it can be used in the classroom, I decided this year I may tweak a current science project and include ThingLink as an alternative to the normal pencil and paper report.

My students are assigned a report on an inventor and invention and are to read the report to the class.  This year I will teach my class how to use ThingLink earlier in the year, and then they will use this new tool to showcase what they learn about the inventor.  I will also be changing it from a project to be worked on individually to a project for pairs to collaborate and discuss. 

Here is a link to the standards, lesson summary, and checklist for the students.  Including in the document is an example I made to show the students what is expected.
