During my science lesson, I had my students use vetted websites like Kahoot, Quizlet, Generation Genius, and Magnolia search engine that is managed by Mississippi State University Library. For my math lesson, I had my students create graphs on the computer using Microsoft Office Word. I used Generation Genius to help me teach my lesson to the whole class. The students used Kahoot and Quizlet to answer questions about the lesson. The students completed these assessments during reading centers while they were on the computer. My class used Magnolia search engine to investigate different animals and their habitats as part of the lesson. The students completed their research in small groups, so I could guide them to make sure they were getting correct and accurate information. For the Math lesson, I showed my class how to make a bar graph on the computer using Word. For the lesson, the students were in groups of 4 to create their own graphs. They had to make a graph on paper first then, they took their paper copy and put it in a Word document. While the other groups were making their paper copies, I had one group at a time creating the computer graph, so I could guide them.
