Online Learning for K – 5 for May 4 – Augmented Reality

(Note: this lesson is optional for Grade 3 who are working on another project with Miss Bosch and Mrs. Parris.)

Please first watch the video below to learn about Augmented Reality/AR:

To view AR objects in Google Search you’ll need:

  • Android smartphone or tablet: Android 7.0 or higher w/ pre-installed Google Play Store
  • iPhone/iPad: iOS 11.0 or higher

These are the animals that you can search for in Google that will convert to 3D augmented reality. When the search results open up, look for the view in 3D link to open the AR. (Please watch the video above to see exactly how to do it!) Take a photo of your animal when you get it to appear! (Note, these links will not work on a computer, only the phones/tablets listed above. Some phones may allow you to take video, but most will only take a still photo.)

If you cannot get the AR to work on your phone, here is a link to some animal webcams that you can visit. (Note: not all of the links may be active/working.)

Wildlife Live Feeds

When you are done with your activity for this week, leave a comment telling me which animals you made appear using Augmented Reality or which animals you saw online using webcams. A grown up may email one of the pictures to me so I can see it! kbosch@southfieldchristian.org.

Project Idea: If you want, you may use a computer or iPad to type a story about the Augmented Reality animal visiting your house or yard. Add the picture into the story if you can. A grown-up may send the story to me – I would love to see it!

Online Learning Week for K – 5 – April 13 – Crazy Characters

For this week’s technology class, I would like you to read the 3D Crazy Characters eBook which was written by the 2nd graders. Click on the link below to open up the book to read it. (If you use the Chrome or Safari browser, there will be a READ TO ME button in the top right corner.) Older students, you may remember making these crazy characters when you were in second grade – your job this week is to encourage the younger students!

CLICK THIS LINK TO READ CRAZY CHARACTERS 2020 ONLINE

When you are done, you may leave a comment at this blog post to tell the second graders what you liked about this book. Click up at the top title where it says “comments”. Older students, be sure you are thoughtful and kind in your comment to support and encourage the 2nd graders. (Younger students may need a grown-up to help them write the comment.) Please only use your first name (NO LAST NAMES, NO EMAIL). Miss Bosch will check all comments before they are posted.

OPTIONAL PROJECT ACTIVITY (if you wish):

Use a technology tool like a computer or an iPad to draw a picture or write a story about a crazy character that you invent. (Second graders or students who did this project in the past, you may also draw or write the new or continuing adventures of your 3D crazy character!) If you want, your parents may email your project to me so I can see it. Have fun and be creative – don’t just do the same thing you did in your book!

HERE ARE SUGGESTED DRAWING APPS/WEBSITES FOR THIS PROJECT:

TO TYPE A STORY:

  • Use Microsoft Word, Apple Pages, or Google Docs on a computer or iPad (see an adult for help to find these tools to use).
  • Book Creator App(NOTE: this is a paid app – wonderful options for book building, drawing, audio, video, and creativity! This is the app we used to make our Crazy Character book! Worth the price!)
  • Any other option that lets you make a story is fine, too!

Parents, you can also download the Crazy Characters eBook at iTunes for free if you have an iPhone, iPad, or Mac computer:

When you finish your project, leave a comment telling me what project you did and how you made it.
