All the Grade 2 teachers spent a day last week in our training center learning how to use the internet and Kid Pix Slide Show to present their knowledge and understanding of Living Organism Adaptation.  This PD day has given the teachers the time to learn the technical skills involve in the project but more importantly also discuss whether the summative task has given students a chance to showcase their understanding of the inquiry and whether the assessment rubric has given students a clear understanding of the expectations.  Throughout the day, teachers has learned to use pictures, text, sound effects and their own voice to answer some big questions like what do living organisms need for survival and how do specific adaptations help living organisms survive.
