So, I didn't think it could get much cooler...BUT IT DID! (All because of a conversation...)
I have a girl in my homeroom that I have just started to connect with. We started chatting about her DS and a game that connects to our current study of ecosystems, Animal Sims.
She explained the general premise of the game...building a healthy ecosystem with plants and animals. Then, she started talking plant needs (space, water, pollination) and animal needs with food habitat...and on! That's been our class direction. So, I asked her if she would be allowed to bring the game and system in for me to check out.
What a super cool class we had! This young lady totally rose to the occasion. Using an iPad camera connecting to our smart board, she did a great demo of the game! She talked the science behind everything, too! I was floored...my quiet, shy homeroom student TOTALLY became the science teacher. And, she did a PHENOMENAL job. She was answering my questions, along with other students.
I am so proud of my student! And, I'm very excited that I gave her the stage, let her teach, and show the other students that they are valued!
*In the video clip, my student is finishing up and I am reviewing with her.
