A Wild, Wonderful World

Students in Mr. Ryder’s class embarked on a project allowing them to explore the world around Oak Grove Elementary, searching for hidden beauty and wonder.  It was based on the story Wild Shots, written by Tui De Roy for Ranger Rick magazine.  In the article, Tui shared her “Up-Close and Personal” approach to nature photography.  During a four session project, students used iPads to take pictures of things animals, plants, or anything that fascinated them.

They created descriptions about their pictures using the app, Popplet.  Then using the app Videolicious, they created a slide show with their pictures and descriptions.  On the final day of the project, they presented their slide show to the class.  Here they are below.  Click directly on the image to see their Popplet.  Click on the link below the image to see the corresponding video.

Please note that there are a few slide shows or popplets that didn’t make it on this website because the student included his/her name somewhere in the project or parents did not give permission for work to be published.  We do not post student pictures with names for privacy and safety reasons.  If you want to see your child’s work, let us know, and we will be happy to email it to you.
