Students in 4th grade are researching Lonestar Heros as part of a multi-week project. Students utilized the research function in Google Docs to supplement their research of their person. The Research function allows students to search for information and images and then cites the source for them as a footnote. Several students brought their own device to use in class which helped increase the device to student ratio so that more students could work on their project at school. Students in the Next Gen classroom were able to use their Dell Venue tablets to work on their projects as well.

Kindergarten classes didn't have to pack their bags in order to visit Sea Turtle Inc, a sea turtle hospital in South Padre Island, Texas. Students were able to interact with an educator from Sea Turtle Inc. The kids were excited to not only learn about the many Sea Turtle Species, but to be able to see real Sea Turtles that are being rehabilitated at their facility. What an incredible experience!!!

Kindergartners were overjoyed at the opportunity to have access to their GAFE accounts. With the help of older students, Kindergarten students learned to access their accounts, add the Google Classroom Google App, and complete an assignment from their teacher using Google Drawing posted in Google Classroom.
