Propaganda Museum Walk

Hey 6th grade Social Studies students! Put your thinking caps on because it’s time to think critically. You are invited along a Propaganda Museum Walk in the Digital Age Classroom where you will find groupings of World War II Propaganda borrowed from Cobb Digital Library’s Britannica Image Quest. Evaluate the examples identifying the tone and the representation of the subjects. Utilizing your understandings from the DBQ process, determine what the documents say, what they mean, and why they matter. Utilize your group members to facilitate discussion and evaluation of the primary source documents provided.

 

Use the Propaganda Museum Walk Guide, provided to you, as you evaluate the posters.

 

Propaganda Museum Walk Folder 

 

The above allows access to the shared folder on Microsoft Office 365 and includes the primary source documents utilized via the Propaganda Museum Walk.

Do Ink with 7th Grade Science

Okay kiddos! You are now experts of the Human Body Systems. You have utilized resources in the Cobb Digital Library to learn all about the functions and the major organs that make up the Digestive, Circulatory, Nervous, Excretory, Respiratory, Skeletal, Muscular, and Immune Systems, and you have identified how they work together to create complex multi-cellular organisms. Now it’s time to pull all of that knowledge together and to present it to one another. YAY! And for that we will use the DoInk APP!

Before diving into the DoInk APP, let’s look at our requirments:

Accelerated Content Project Rubric

On-Level Project Rubric

There’s no limit to how A-W-E-S-O-M-E your project can be! For any and all questions, check out the Do Ink website. We will be getting started with the Do Ink Tutorials which can be found on the Do Ink website.

Here’s the Getting Started Checklist we will be using to ready us for the project creation. If you need additional support understanding the concept of a Storyboard, check out Vyond for a detailed explanation.

Ready, Set, Go!

7th Science: Human Body Systems

Hi 7th grade Scientists! Let’s use Cobb Digital Library to locate the BEST, most timely and relevant information on how organ systems interact to carry out life functions. Humans–and other complex multicellular organisms–have systems of organs that work together carrying out processes that keep us alive. Here’s how to get started using Cobb Digital Library to learn all about human body systems.

 

Science Databases are arranged in a group for quick access and include:

 

 

 

 

Helpful Hint: In BrainPOP, use the Make-a-Map Feature to create outlines of your notes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*All of the above resources feature content on Human Body Systems

Use this graphic organizer to assist you in note-taking.

This daily checklist will be turned in as your “Ticket Out the Door” at the end of each class period and will provide daily feedback regarding your progress. 

Science Standard:

S7L2. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to describe how cell structures, cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems interact to maintain the basic needs of organisms.

c. Construct an argument that systems of the body (Cardiovascular, Excretory, Digestive, Respiratory, Muscular, Nervous, and Immune) interact with one another to carry out life processes.

(Clarification statement: The emphasis is not on learning individual structures and functions associated with each system, but on how systems interact to support life processes.)
