Grade 4 students are working on researching inventions and will write their own book on their findings. Last year they wrote books on influential women in the Middle East. They are working with free software available online called Riot Photobooks .This year, apart from working on a new topic, they will also be using a timeline app to reflect an element of where there inventors fit in, in history.
Time Line is a free app which allows for collection of images and text in a time line format. It is a wonderful visual tool to help students understand their place in time.
