Guinness World Records Lesson Plans

I spent a day last week creating what I will need for my Guinness World Record unit .

Activity #1 will kick things off and utilize the posters I purchased from Joann’s. This will be their first experience with the Educreations app. My primary focus of Part 1  will be taking photos with the camera, typing a sentence, and recording their voices.    Part 2 will be an individual writing activity where they will have to open and view a lesson in Educreations.

Activity #2 will focus on more academic skills while students summarize brief articles that can be found with QR codes.  Students will get experience with the i-nigma app to access the articles and they will have paper copies of the graphic organizer (shown below).  The PDF at the bottom of this post has the links and QR codes for 6 articles on the Guinness website.  I tried to choose stories that would be of interest to my students since I already know them.  You can create your own QR codes at http://www.kaywa.com

Activity #3 will be informational text comprehension and I will use the leveled stories from the Guinness website.   Here are links to the selections written for Grades 3-6.  While students work on these independently (reading the article in iBooks) and I will be doing some writing with others.
