Online collaboration with Spanish students

Categories: Roanoke County | 2017

Students in 5th grade are being partnered with students in a Spanish speaking developing country.  During the program, students will send video messages back and forth with their partner and work together to create a design for a solar flashlight (using Tinkercad). They will 3D print and assemble their designs. High School Spanish students from Cave Spring High will be coming to work with the 5th graders to teach them basic Spanish conversational skills so they will be able to include Spanish in their videos.  The project clearly supports the 5 C's plus Global Studies, Science, Writing, Oral Communication, and Computer/Technology SOLs.
