Collaborative Project ~ Technology & Social Studies
This past fall, our school district had a "Collaborative Professional Developement Day" so my good friend and 7th Grade Social Studies Teacher, Jon Bick and I decided to do something between our classes. I had an existing "Lego Maglev" activity that I have been working at for the past couple of years. Jon's slant on the activity was that he needed to approach this unit from a historical aspect of mass transportation in the United States... therefore I needed to include rail. Here is a short video clip of Jon and one of our students commenting on the collaboration.
