This year, all students in 6th grade will be trained and outfitted with iPads. In the next school year, the 5th grade students will receive iPads, and in the following year after that, the 4th grade students will receive the iPads. The objective is for students to engage in research to gain knowledge and understanding of a specific turning point in history that is directly aligned to their Social Studies curriculum. Students will use their own iPads to develop skills to explore historical information and documents using credible on-line resources and websites. With the information gleaned, students will write a research paper and as a culmination project, they will use their research to create an interactive presentation using software technology such as i-Movie.
