2. Our fifth grade studies states and regions of the United States.Earlier in the school year they did some individual research, reported on individual states and created poster presentations.As a culminating activity we thought it would be fun to have a video conference with another fifth grade in another school in our district (Diocese) about state facts.So both classes created I Am poems about the state that they studied earlier.We decided it would be neat to have a little competition so we assigned point value to each line in the poem. (See template in the next slide.)At the video conference our students took turns reading their poem line by line.If the other class could guess the name of the state they got the number of points assigned to that line. Even though we lost (by a small margin) we had a great time conferencing with our friends at Our Lady of Perpetual Help school in Grove City, Ohio.We look forward to doing something with them again in the future.Now we hope you enjoy reading our cleverly descriptive poems.
