HUBER HEIGHTS — SOAR students in grades 3-5 recently participated in the Doodle 4 Google Contest. Five students were so enthusiastic about participating that they went above and beyond, creating, writing, and editing a video to enter into the Doodle 4 Google Teacher Contest. Limited to 30 seconds or less, the video had tell how students were inspired to enter the 2015 Doodle 4 Google contest . You can view the video here.
The students did not place in the Doodle 4 Google student contest, but their video was runner up in the Doodle 4 Google Teacher Contest and won $1,000 for classroom supplies! Students brainstormed what classroom supplies they wanted, set criteria, researched costs of items, and fit them into a budget. They have spent part of the money on technology items like Little Bits, Makey Makey, and Ozobots. They also bought a class set of wobble cushions and are looking at new playground balls and the cost of a field trip for each class. This ongoing, challenging lesson has integrated math, art, writing, research, and technology with critical and creative thinking skills. It was a “winning” experience.
