iPads, Expository Writing, and Spiders

Assumption Catholic School is the recipient of twenty-five iPads through an educational-technology grant. With assistance from Perth Amboy High School and the Perth Amboy Board of Education, the iPads are ready for classroom use!

Coinciding with lessons on Expository Writing, a Scholastic News Article, “Are You Afraid of Spiders?”, and two reading stories, Spiders at Work and Web Wonders, the third grade students were given the opportunity to use iPads to “surf” the web and create a report on spiders. The Brown Recluse, Tarantula, Wolf, and Daddy Long Legs are just some of the spiders students chose to write about.
