2nd grade students continue to put balance concepts and vocabulary to use, this time using the app Balance Game by Uwe Meier. The task here was to play the app and take several screenshots of balanced scales. Next, import the screenshot(s) to Educreations and explain the science/strategy used.
One group chose to type their thinking, the other used the record option--I love how easy the iPad is for differentiation and for students to make the choices that work best for them.
Two other balance apps students used were Fill the Cup and iSolveIt: MathScaled, but I did not have them create any content after playing those games.
