Yesterday I took my students on a free field trip to the Apple store. Prior to the visit, students chose a mammal to research online. I created a folder of images, separated into files for Animals, Habitats, and Adaptations. I also included a Keynote template, since this was the students first time using Keynote. Each student had their research in front of them as they filled in the template. There were three Apple facilitators and three parent volunteers to help us. At the end of our 90 minute session, students came away with their Keynote presentation on a CD, a personalized certificate from the Apple store, and an Apple t-shirt. What a unique field trip experience!
To prepare for the field trip, the students used templates from my Animal Research Bundle. Click on the link to preview the file at my Teachers Pay Teachers store!
