Showcasing Knowledge in Hands-on Activity

1

Second-grade students of Ms. Maryann Raffaniello’s, Ms. Erin Kennedy’s and Ms. Marissa Diamond’s classes at Rhame Avenue wrapped up their social studies/geography unit of study by taking on the world. Through an exciting hands-on activity, they named and colored each continent and then glued them onto a blue paper plate that signified the globe.

The project allowed students to showcase their knowledge of identifying continents and oceans by name and then arranged them as they are seen on the world map. Students also worked together in assisting one another throughout the project. 

Ms. Raffaniello said that technology was incorporated into teaching the unit to students, which included student friendly YouTube videos, BrainPOP, PNW BOCES websites and more.
