Learning is: Going to New Depths
Visit Ms. Fagan’s 5th grade classroom at Fairview Elementary School in Buncombe County Schools. This month, they allowed our Discovery Education Community to join them in studying explorer Jacques Cousteau.
The Big Idea
By completing a series of interactive centers featuring Discovery Education Streaming Plus resources, Ms. Fagan’s English/Language Arts students examined the life of Jacques Cousteau, learned about water pollution, and explored sea life. After exploring the resources, students demonstrated their learning through summarizing and assessment strategies from Discovery Education’s Spotlight on Strategies series. (Canadian subscribers)
Learn more by stepping into a 360 degree view of Ms. Fagan’s classroom. Here are tips to maximize the experience:
- After launching the 360 degree image, spin your view to find the pin that reads Begin Here. Play the embedded video to meet Ms. Fagan as she shares what students are learning.
- Just as students rotate through the centers, follow the pins in numerical order. Each numbered pin contains an embedded video that describes what students are doing in each station to support their learning.
- Don’t take our word for it: hear from Ms. Fagan and see examples of her students’ learning by selecting the pins with images.
