Classroom Activities

After reading a book from the 2006-2007 3rd-5th grade nominated list, each seventh-grader created a podcast about the book they read. All 22 of these podcasts are now found on the internet at http://websites.mcpherson.com/~nyeb  Each podcast is approximately one to two minutes in length. After clicking on the podcast title, the listener/viewer should hear a promotional script which the seventh grader has written and recorded along with other sound effects.  He/She also should see some related images.
 
Please show these podcasts to a group of 3rd, 4th and/or 5th graders and please ask them to vote for their favorite podcast. You may email your results to bev.nye@mcpherson.com by March 7, 2007.
 
We hope you find these podcasts entertaining and persuasive. We appreciate your participation and look forward to hearing from you.
