      • Station: 11 Title : “Flower Power”
      • Name : Debbie Ritter Grade : Kindergarten Focus Subject: Science

Plants are remarkable in so many ways; yet, in their study, emphasis is usually placed solely on naming the parts of a plant. By allowing students to become active learners, rather than passive viewers by implementing a level of technology integration (LOTI), students could be treated to some of the fun aspects of studying botany in the hopes of dispelling the perception that plants are boring.
      • Students published books using Microsoft Word, wrote individual stories using Kidspiration, and took digital pictures and narrated a movie using Photostory/Movie Maker to document their learning experiences.
