Grade KOur kindergartners have been learning about animals and their families with their homeroom teachers. After establishing a solid foundation of background knowledge about animals and their families, students used our classroom ipads to draw animals using the app, Drawing Pad, and the app, Explain Everything, to record the animal facts they had learned. Enjoy each classroom's animal family project below.

Second grade students have been learning about digital citizenship and how to stay safe online. We used Common Sense Education's curriculum and lesson, "Going Places Safely" which teaches us how to safely visit places on the internet. Here are pictures and video from the lesson as well as students safely visiting the San Diego Zoo website on their ipads.
