Update: A Collaborative Project for Beginners-- Want to Join? Grade 2 Focus

Update #2: Several more folks have agreed to join the project (tho Matt, below had to drop out) so I think the best idea would be to set up a wiki where we collect our ideas, calendar of events, and resources. Stay tuned, I'll add the wiki link here after I create it later tonight. Thanks everyone! This will be fun!

Update: I HAVE TWO LIVE ONES! Matt in Michigan and Lorraine in Mass are thinking of joining this project. Thanks everyone. I am cross-posting from the Global Education Collaborative Ning.

I am helping three grade 2 teachers do a small project that demonstrates the power of collaboration. We would like to meet others whose students will create and share short slide sets with voiceover about My Favorite Toy.
The set: Photo of child and toy, Google earth placemark showing where toy was made, scanned drawing by child of scene in which he/she gets or uses the toy, with voiceover.
I am putting together a lesson template now and can share it with participating classes so we're on the same page. Interested? Please let me know! We would be ready to share after April 7.

I made some modifications from your original project plan so that it would be possible for my students to participate. The students drew pictures of themselves with a photo of their toy from the internet. Many of the toys are from China since they are webkinz and electronic toys that they consider their 'favorite.' I think that they will be interested in looking at 'favorite toys' of children who are also in second grade. We will record the file next Tuesday and share the URL with you.
This is fine, I don't think there is any need for copy/paste methods here... important that we think on a topic together and share what we learn. It will be interesting to see how we approach these shared aims in different ways. Oh, and we decided to tell kids no webkinz and no fighting toys, those were the only rules.
I teach Year 6 in Australia, and though my students are a bit older, I would love to participate in this project. What a fantastic idea! We use edublogs. Would we need a ning account to participate?
Nope, I think you can choose the technology you want to use-- if it's on the Web and we can see, we will be happy. We would like to do a skype videoconference with your class, however, if that is possible. We are on US pacific daylight savings time.
