Fifth graders in the Media Tech class are learning about spreadsheets! A spreadsheet contains rows and columns and is used to record and compare data. They opened a new spreadsheet using MS Excel, entered data, a formula, and then created a chart to help analyze their data.
March 20, 2013 is the first day of spring! This is the time of year when the sun crosses directly over the equator. It is the Vernal Equinox. Equinox means means “equal night.” Because the Sun is positioned above the equator, day and night are about equal in length all over the world!
Enjoy these spring acrostic poems!

What is your favorite time of day? Fifth grade Media Tech students wrote about their favorite time of day! Using the iPad, they took a picture of a clock, inserted it into a new Pages document, wrote a paragraph about their favorite time of day, and edited the text for font style, size, etc. They uploaded their work to our student network drive using the WebDAV app, and we created a flipbook using Youblisher to share their writing.
Fifth grade Media Tech students brainstormed ways they could help make the world more awesome and a better place to live. They used Keynote on an iPad and created slides to share their thoughts.
