1 Heroes in History and Literature: A Technology and Library Collaboration

Working collaboratively with my librarian, 10 stations (for 3rd Graders) were created around Heroes in History and Literature. The educational goal was for the students to discover what the person/character did and why they were famous.  Below are the heroes the students researched. The final project will result in students creating Taboo cards with their information.
State and National
  • Daniel Boone
  • Davy Crockett
  • Molly Pitcher
Folktales and Legends
  • Pecos Bill
  • Paul Bunyan
  • Hercules
  • Perseus and Medusa
  • Theseus and the Minotaur
  • Menelaus and the Trojan Horse
  • Zeus 
Various idevices were utilized (i.e. iTouches, iPads, and Nanos) as well as online resources. Both students and teachers seem to enjoy the joint efforts of this collaborative project. Please view the below Animoto of the results:
