This lesson not only lets students incorporate tech in a meaningful way, not just for tech’s sake, but lets them truly adapt a different voice and unique perspective. While most of my students’ work can be found here, below is just a sample of the finished product.
For the past two years, my phenomenal tech teacher, Myrna Heilman, has spearheaded the Diary of project in the 4th grade. The students get to research an animal of their choosing, write down 10 facts at least and then create a movie pretending to be their animal. This is based on the books in the “Diary of a Fly” series and this lesson plan.
