After students have completed and printed their birthday card choices they will return to “home” and design an award, bingo card, bookmark, calendar, doorknob hanger, or gift tag  (student’s choice).  All students should be able to complete and print at least three different activities that they have created themselves.

How did the website activities contribute to student learning?

This website allows students to create or design all kinds of activities for both adults and children.  It shows the student that they do not have to go out and purchase greeting cards or coloring books, they can create their own. 

 

Was the goal achieved? How do you know, i.e. what could the students do or do better as a result of the lesson?

Every student created a birthday card and several of them made two or more.
