Cute Review Project

Mapskip

I just wanted to share a review project the Ms. Broussard did with the Sixth grade students.  She used Mapskip.com along with DE Streaming images and digital voice recorders.  Each group of students made a summary of each of the six events they had studied.  Here’s a sample:  http://www.mapskip.com/stories.php?story=2870
