Our class have signed up for the Student Blogging Challenge this year. The Student Blogging Challenge is a series of weekly activities run over ten weeks. The goal of the challenge is to improve student blogging and commenting skills and connect with a global audience.
We are in the second week of the challenge and the activity we have chosen to do this week was to create a quiz about the state we live in South Australia. We hope you learn a little more about our state and be even tempted to come and visit.
Storybird is my favourite web 2.0 tool, because you can make your own story up and read it. Our teacher has put a blog post on his blog that explains all about it to other teachers. Here is the link http://primaryedutech.com/2011/storybird/.
A good must see place is Port Pirie, because you can see a model of a great white shark. You can go to the beach to see the sparkling clear water. Port Pirie is 245km from Aberfoyle Park. It is three hours and 45 min by car. I enjoyed all of the parks and buildings. They were all very interesting.
