Activotes for the Whole Class

Mrs. Bridendolph's third grade class was expanding their use of the interactive Promethean Board with the student response systems called Activotes. These devices are a great tool and an easy way to assess and include all of the students throughout the lesson. Miss Hintz went over Cause and Effect with the class to help review the different types of questions we can ask and vote on. Here a student is writing their opinion and the class will vote A for Thumbs up (they agree) or B for thumbs down (disagree). Great news, they all agreed that the causes would make the audience cheer!

Students were encouraged to investigate conservation efforts in our community. Check out some of the projects.
