As a part of our Inquiry into Artefacts we’ve been investigating the changes different items have gone through over the years.
Our class members chose an object and created a timeline to show how and why an object has changed over time. They investigated changes in their chosen object, when the changes happened and how it improved or changed.
Some of the topics were:
- swim suits
This process involved lots of new skills – we’ve used iPads to research the topic and find key dates and facts, we took screenshots of images that were free to use, learnt how to edit and crop an image and publish all of the relevant information and images in iBook Creator.
The students had to work really hard and this research was a lot more challenging than we thought it would be. They worked very hard int teams and shared the workload to create their books.
We shared our iBooks via airplay onto our interactive whiteboard so that the whole class could see our books and provide feedback.
