  • Our fifth grade students in Rooms 307 and 309 will be doing an ecological anthropology unit on the nearby Kinnickinnic River. The unit will focus on the relationship between Milwaukeeans and the river over the course of time. The students will team up with local river experts and concerned citizens to sample and monitor the water quality of the Kinnickinnic River and look for trends in river health. They will examine a broad range of topics from environmentalist movements to wildlife and habitat conservation to traditional ecological knowledge and best practices. They will access electronic articles (with differentiated reading levels) and other web resources that have been pre-selected and placed in a SLC course. The information they read and acquire about the local community will be used to answer discussion questions and moral dilemmas via online discussions with fellow peers. Technology tools will be used to gather information pertinent to their research study, enter data (spreadsheets), and analyze their information (graphs and word processor). They will use Microsoft PowerPoint to develop a thorough and visually attractive presentation that synthesizes and conveys their learning in this unit. A digital camcorder and digital camera will be used to capture and document the significant events of this research unit via Quicktime and iDVD. A small group of students will create the audio narrative for the video documentary.
