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  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 by March 7, 2007.
We hope you find these podcasts entertaining and persuasive. We appreciate your participation and look forward to hearing from you.
