Second Grade Uses Google Slides To Create Dictionaries

Second grade students at Blackland Prairie studies forces in science. They used Google Slides to create a science dictionary showcasing their understanding of the vocabulary and concepts. The students created slides with a word, a self-generated definition, and a picture that represented that concept. Mrs. Rollans discussed how images can help enhance understanding of ideas. The students then used the new “Explore” tool to help them create layouts that looked “professional” to students and similar to something they might find in a book. The students discussed how layouts can enhance or distract from the message (the definition) they were trying to relay.

The second grade teachers were impressed with how the dictionaries came out and plan to continue to add words throughout the year as the students master new concepts.
