|Susan Silverman and Pattie Knox are at it
After their successful project, Frosty Readers
2001, they couldn't
resist collaborating on another Internet project. So, here we have
Cinderella Around the World! Now aren't these the most adorable
fairy godmothers you've ever seen?
Since this is a global project, the activities are designed to support learning standards from a variety of geographical areas. It also supports the following National Educational Technology Standards for Students. (NETS)
NETS for Students
1. Basic operations and concepts
2. Social, ethical, and human issues
3. Technology productivity tools
4. Technology communications tools
Project participants will be expected to list the learning standards for their state, region or list the NET Standards.
Recommended For Students:
Grades 1-4 (ages 6-10)
Participating classes will read multi-cultural versions of Cinderella. Teachers are welcome to choose a book from a list or contribute to it. After reading the story students will engage in language arts, social studies, math or science activities that will be showcased on a web site. Classes are invited to submit a maximum of six illustrations per class. Warning: if you try to sneak extra graphics your hard drive will turn into a pumpkin! Students may work individually, in small groups or as a class. The URL for this project is: http://kids-learn.org/cinderella/
All materials will be sent electronically and are due by Monday, October 1, 2001. We expect this project to have a waitlist so there will be no extensions on time. People who are waitlisted will be notified by Friday, October 5, 2001. Their due date will be October 22, 2001. The site will remain posted to be used as a resource for teachers and students.
Number of Participants:
There will be a separate page for a twenty-five participating classes. Right now we are only accepting one class per school. More classes will be added if Susan and Pattie have the time and energy! (they will need very powerful magic wands to get that)
