Today students used iPads to research interesting facts about animals and posted their facts on a padlet wall.
First students went to the National Geographic Kids website. Then they picked an animal they were interested in finding more about. Students read (and watched videos) through the information and recorded key words on a yellow sticky. Finally students used the key words to paraphrase the information on our padlet wall.

Task the students were given:
