E.G. Ross Students Dive into Pond Ecology

Steve Lamb's second graders create fiction and non-fiction environments for the school to explore.

Common Core at E. G. Ross Elementary comes alive with this interactive pond built by Steve Lamb’s 2nd grade class. His students were asked to brainstorm and research themes about ponds as they learned the difference between fiction and non-fiction. Together, they created two environments that were displayed for the entire school to explore.

Guided by Lamb’s 2nd graders, students were able to engage in the display using iPads to take photos and record their experience.

This student-centered project gave 2nd and 5th graders an avenue to collaborate, communicate and create using interactive apps.
