Last 2 Photostories - Phew!

The children from Rooms 5 and 6 really enjoyed working with a Digikid who helped them to make their own Fauna and Flora slideshow. See if you can spot examples of Fauna or Flora or both in our Photostories. We tried very hard to make them interesting with different coloured words, tranisitions, background music and our own voices! What do you think everyone?

The rest of our Photostories!

By HO and E. We were able to find some different type of flora in our school. Can you suggest where we could look to find some different fauna?

By GV and R. We found examples of fauna and flora but we don't know if they are all native to New Zealand. Did you notice we used adjectives to add interest?

By PM and E. We tried really hard to type key words and then tell an oral sentence about our photographs on our own.

Learning about Photostory!

We did a form in Google docs to find out what we already knew about Photostory. Look at the graphs below, they show what we thought.

Next we did some practising. We took some photos of fauna and flora in our school grounds and then each Digikid worked with a friend and helped them to make a slideshow. Have a look and see what you think? We did try very hard with our spelling but we didn't get all of the words exactly right!

By AL and J. Can you tell if we took photos of fauna or flora or both?

By CA and N. Do you know the name of the bird we took a photo of? We would like to know its name.

By KND and I. Can you find the tree we named in Maori?
