Cybersaurus Rex!

For our dinosaur unit, the librarian Mrs. Crawford, the computer lab teacher Mrs. Burlew and I worked together. The students were assigned a dinosaur in art class, they took their sketchbook with them to library to research and make sketches of that dinosaur. Then they went to computer lab to research online and make Powerpoint slide shows about their dinosaur. By the time they came back to art they were experts on that particular dinosaur, which they then made into a sculpture using Pariscraft.

On Family Fun Night, visitors could view those slide shows, some of which were set to funky music! They also could play some dinosaur related educational games.
