Students will start the activity by collectively discussing their own family units. They will watch a slideshow of my own family album and discuss members and their roles within it.
Photopeach.com is a slideshow application that is user friendly for all age groups. Not only can you share your photos but you can create stories through writing your own captions while integrating music to add to the viewing experience.
Students will reflect on their experience by creating their own family album of the members in their family. They will present their slideshow and share with the class. This will enable students to be exposed to the differences of families units amongst their peers. Students will be able to compare and contrast similarities and differences of the families that make up their community.
The target audience is students in K-3.
Previous Knowledge: From discussions and stories on families and community children have discussed the various members that make up a family.
Relevant: Children in K-3 are learning about roles and member of a family unit. This will help them make connections and understand the members and functions of each person in a family. Students will make connections that they too are a collective part of a community.
Local/Global Audience: By creating their own slideshow, students can share their stories and shows with others through embedding into the class website, sharing with the collective community on Photopeach, and sharing the slideshow with family and friends.
