Glogging in Grade 1

I have been trying to find an effective way to teach students in Grade One about glogster, the virtual poster. I decided to integrate it into social studies where we learn about different communities. Before we begin our virtual trip across Alberta, we needed to define some terms and begin to understand what rural and urban communities look like. To help students understand these concepts, we created a glog on glogster and categorized pictures based on whether they would belong in a rural or urban community. We had valuable discussions including how paved roads could be in both types of communities. Students had their own poster paper and made their own "glog" with pictures to demonstrate their learning.

Here is our class glog on communities:
