Use these examples of projects created by students and tweets from classroom teachers to inspire technology integration in your third-grade classroom.
Whether you have Chromebooks, iPads, PCs, or Macs in your classroom, you can use technology to engage and inspire your students in the curriculum.
These multimedia projects were created by students using Wixie.
"My team of 3rd-grade teachers and I love Wixie. As soon as we mention it, there is excitement and engagement in the room. Students feel a sense of ownership and creativity, and once you teach the basics, the students are independent. I love that I can assign items to the whole class or differentiate by modifying activities and sharing them with different groups. The pre-made maps, diagrams, and templates are an easy way for me to shoot out an assignment that will match almost any lesson."

Wixie's Templates library includes a range of third-grade math activities you can use for formative assessment purposes or tasks for student work at centers and in station rotations.
Students interview dinosaurs to demonstrate knowledge of animal characteristics, diet, and more.
Have students write how-to books for favorite activities or tasks they can do independently.
Students apply what they have learned about animal characteristics and adaptation to create a new creature and introduce it to the scientific community.
Students can choose a scientific cycle such as pollenation and illustrate it to build and demonstrate their understanding.
Students explore character, plot, and theme and write persuasively as they develop a movie-style trailer for a book they have read.
Students who are college and career-ready can "gather, comprehend, evaluate, synthesize, and report on information and ideas." Use Wixie to get them excited about informative writing in a 21st century format.

Wixie has created an awesome tool for students to go above and beyond! This student chose to create an ocean for her aquatic ecosystem and even added in the layers of the ocean and ocean facts!???? pic.twitter.com/WENTchUJCq— Ms. Djalleta (she/her) (@MsDjalleta) October 8, 2020
We’ve been planning, reorganizing, and helping one another with our new informative writing unit. Everyone has worked so hard to pick their topic, subtopics, and make their lists!
