1st Grade Diagrams

This week students read a selection in the anthology about diagrams and how to read them. They each created a drawing in Drawing Pad of a penguin or polar bear (2 animals we studied a lot recently) and then imported it to Skitch and labelled body parts. Our iPad 1s are slowly malfunctioning--Drawing Pad will no longer save on them (but on iPad 2s there's no problem) so we are using screenshots. After all students finished their diagrams they pair-shared 4 times and each time took turns teaching their diagram and asking questions about the other student's diagram. Finally, they each had to finished the stem "I liked your diagram because..." and give a specific reason, which had to be different every time.
