Lakeview Sixth Graders Share Mineral Research Facts Using Popplet, Adobe Spark Post and Google Slides
This morning in the AT&T Classroom the Lakeview 6th graders were introduced to a few new design tools to support their science investigation of rocks and minerals.
Popplet is a free web-based tool that can be used to create concept maps and diagrams. The application allows you to build a diagram or outline by creating popples in various shapes and sizes to represent individual facts or details related to a specific concept. Students can also add text, drawing, or images to each popple. Students are able to draw their own image or use the online search function within the app to find and insert a photo or image from the web. This morning the sixth graders learned how to navigate the tool’s features to build a concept map encompassing facts and images from their rocks and minerals research.
