This week we learned about web browsers, at Rivendell we use Google Chrome. Maybe you could share what web browser you use at home to connect to the internet. Since Halloween is around the corner I showed them a website where they get to create characters with different animal/insect parts. http://www.buildyourwildself.com/
We watched a short video about cybersafety on http://www.brainpopjr.com/health/besafe/internetsafety/. Then Beate gave them a research assignment for German that I helped the kids with.
We started the week off watching a video on cybersafety http://www.brainpop.com/technology/computersandinternet/onlinesafety/preview.weml and then changed our Google Account passwords so that they were more secure. Then I introduced them to Google Presentations in preparation for a project they will be doing about Ancient Rome. On Weds. the fourth graders got to create their own website, which will only be accessible to those on the Rivendell Account.
