6th graders are starting their Scratch "If You Really Knew Me" projects this week. After finishing their "The View from Saturday" discussions in Language Arts class, they had a challenge day where they shared stories about themselves as a way to get to know each other better and build community. As a follow-up to their class discussions, students are now creating Scratch projects about themselves in Technology class. The projects include a background, a narrative which will be recorded, and an avatar, a virtual version of themselves. The final projects will be posted on one of my scratch website galleries so students can view each other's projects before departing for Hulbert.
