Our Geology unit in CM2-SI focuses on the composition of earth and the forces that change Earth’s surface. As part of our writing project, CM2 students learned to review the stages of the writing process and engaged in several short writing projects. Last week, students examined and learned to write a wiki entry about a specific volcano. A wiki entry is an online resource that provides information on many different topics or subjects. A wiki can be written or edited by multiple people, and can be updated over time. A wiki entry provides information on one particular topic or subject. The focus of this wiki entry was to provide information about volcanoes. Students learned that focus refers to when one specific moment, object, or idea is selected and precise details are used to write about it. Students were provided with a WIKI Entry Rubric. Students used the rubric to help them write their own wiki entry about a specific volcano of their choice.
