This weekend I attended a Day of Discovery event in Baltimore. During the keynote, Lance mentioned the new collaboration projects- and there is one that would be perfect for the start of the school year (geared to grades K-6). It’s called Make Your Mark, While it ties in with International Dot Day (and the associated Peter Reynolds book).
It’s a chance to work with your students to determine how they will make their mark- what will they do this year. There you will find step by step directions to guide you and in the end, your class can upload their digital art and pin your location on the map!
To find this great project, just sign into your Discovery Education account (remember, google.discoveryeducation.com), select the Professional Learning tab, then Events and Experiences, and finally to Collaborative Projects.
