Research with Netbooks

Our Science Space Reports are going well and should be finished soon.
We checked out the Netbook mobile lab and finished up some research in class.  Students went to our school homepage and then logged into WorldBook Kids Encyclopedia.  They were able to research the planets, asteroids, black holes, comets, and much more!  They are working on research skills, non-fiction reading, and technical expository writing. 
They were able to take the notes directly from the computer to their projects.
Right in our classroom!  Isn't technology great?
We aren't quiet at 1:1 technology to student ratio's, but we can for some lessons!  Who knows what they'll be doing by high school!

Learn more about what 1:1 is here!
