This unit focused on information-- Where and how do we find the information we need? How do we present information in compelling ways? Leveraging the First Great Lesson, we used scale and relative size to create our own 'solar system' with HPMS as our very own sun.
After mapping our points in Google maps, measuring the distance from our 'sun' to create our orbits, and creating our own planets, we brought everything together in Google Slides. For many students, it was their first experience working on a digital presentation. Seeing them progress with fine motor skills (using the trackpad and keyboard to select, highlight and cut/copy text) as well as learn so many foundational skills (what the 'cloud' is, where and how files are stored and how to access them, importing photos and linking urls!) was a fantastic experience.
