Office 365 Assignment for STEM Lab
Mrs. Marchelle, our fantastic STEM teacher, is introducing Office 365 to the fourth graders in STEM lab during the next few lessons. It is important that the kids be familiar with how to login and use Office 365 because in coming years, they will be asked to turn in assignments this way, as well as respond to test questions.
For the first lesson, the kids have been asked to write a summary about an article that has details about Colonial life. The summary should be two paragraph and have an opening sentence that has the MAIN IDEA of the article. It should also contain KEY DETAILS from the article in order to answer the questions for the response.
In order to keep the kids on task during the lessons, the fourth grade teachers will grade the paragraph based on an informational rubric that we all use. This includes having an opening sentence, details, correct spelling and punctuation, and a closing sentence. This will help the students understand that these are important lessons, and that they need to participate during STEM time. Students who do not take advantage of the time offered during STEM lab, will need to finish this assignment at home. Login directions were posted on our blogs last week.
