Crazy Creature

Collaborations

Grades: PreK-3                         60-min. connection

Connections Nov. 1-2 - Registration announced in Sept.

Each class will create a creature with a creepy theme. Students will then write a description of their crazy creature for their partner class to replicate. During the videoconference the classes will compare their original creatures with the replicated creatures. For 60 crazy minutes, two classrooms will be paired together for a live two-way interactive event.   Prior to meeting though, each class will create a creature with a unique creepy theme representing an imaginative idea about a creature in the spirit of fall holiday fun! Students will then write a description of their “crazy creature” for a partner-class to replicate by sending ONLY the description via e-mail, U.S. Mail or Fax to the partner teacher at a TWICE member school. Both classes will meet via videoconference to compare their original “creatures” with the replicated “creatures” to see if the Creepy Creature Collaboration was a success.

Symposium

Grades: 4-8                               60-min. connection

By exchanging the first two parts of the story, the receiving schools will finish each other’s stories by writing “what happens next!” Students will then meet for a “scary” two-way interactive experience via ITV by sharing the remainder of the story by reading it, acting it out sharing it as a poem, using video, or any way they decide would be the be a perfect ending to a truly “scary” story!

Registration: Dec. 12-16, 2016

ice in paintings and photographs, to the mathematical and scientific composition of snowflakes can be fascinating.

Amazing American States: K-3 grades

 During this 60-minute connection, partner classes share a presentation about their chosen state (can be your state or any other state you’d like; partner classes must select different states). Following the presentations, students spend about 10-minutes asking each other questions about their respective states and communities. Students will research and share information about land forms, farming, their towns and cities, location in the United States and fun facts that make the state interesting.

 

Where is this Amazing American State: 4-8 grades

 Your class will research a city and state of your choice (partner classes must select different states). You will need to find information based on required clues that will be given to you by TWICE (ex: region, history, civics, etc.). When connected with your partner class for this 60-minute connection, each classroom will give a presentation with the clues about your city and state. The students from the other class will attempt to discover the secret location using the Internet, maps, textbooks and other available resources. Be creative and have fun with this exciting program!
