This video is the result of collaboration between a fourth grade teacher and the librarian. The teacher wanted the students to have hands on learning with measurement and learn how to present their knowledge through a Keynote presentation. Together we created a rubric, designed the learning activity, discussed how we would implement print resources and teach Keynote. The students loved every minute and it showed in their summative assessments.
