Back by popular demand, Frosty Readers is in its second year. This time, Pattie Knox and Susan Silverman are working together to create this resource. Pattie and Susan are both Online Museum Educators for the Franklin Science Museum in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
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 or region. They are welcome to list the NETS standards.
Recommended For Students:
Grades 1-3 (ages 6-9)
Participating classes will read books about
winter. These books can be fact or fiction. Students will engage in a
language arts activity that will be showcased on a web site. Classes are invited to
electronically submit a maximum of six illustrations per class. Students may work
individually, in small groups or as a class. The URL for this project is:http://www.northcanton.sparcc.org/~ptk1nc/frosty2001/
All materials are due by January 31, 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. More classes will be added if Susan and Pattie have the time and energy!
