Travelling Fearless 2010


Group Project

In Term Four 2010, a group of Early Stage 1 students  collaborated on the "Travelling Fearless Project", in which a stuffed toy British bulldog arrived at our school after visiting other schools who'd participated in Term Three's "Across the Story Bridge with Fearless" book rap.

 

Travelling Fearless

 

Firstly, we discussed our ideas in Circle Time with Mr McLean, our teacher-librarian. The next day, we had turns putting Fearless in different locations around the library, and meeting the other animal toys. Cranky the Crocodile, from KI, came over to visit. Mr McLean took the photos. Sometimes Fearless looked scared but sometimes he looked fearless. The next day, we brainstormed captions and Mr McLean wrote our favourites on the IWB (interactive whiteboard). Finally, we put our photos and captions into Photo Peach, which turned our best photos and captions into a digital narrative to share with the world! In the first four days it was online, our slideshow attracted 726 views and 40 comments! We were so happy with the feedback from our viewers, we decided to do another slideshow

 

 Before we knew about wikis and the IWB, we used to write our recounts, procedures and narratives on butcher's paper, or put them in a "news book". Weaving a wiki is fun, and we can share our work with the whole world! Please scroll down to see the rest of our template:

 

   We hope that you will enjoy reading about our progress...
