Skitch'in penguins

We have been wrapping our unit on informational writing this week by studying penguins. Kiddos spent some time working with a partner to read the National Geographic eBook, Penguins. While they were reading they took notes on interesting facts. We then used these notes to create an informational paragraph about penguins. 
We are now using our paragraphs to create a digital version of our research. Yesterday, we used the Pics4Learning site for copyright-free images of penguins. We then imported our images into an app called, Skitch where students then labeled various features of penguins. We will be inserting this diagram into our Doodlecast story. Be on the lookout for these to be emailed to you sometime at the beginning of the week.
