Discussion for Earth's Surface Changes
Susan Kwiatkowski (Student)
Your StAIR is wonderful! I love the tutorials for each topic discussed and the questions are very appropriate for 3rde grade students. The links provided for videos, games and additional information are easy to access and great resources. Great job!
Great links to games and additional resources

Your presentation added a fun twist for students to explore the concepts of weathering. I can see 6th grade geography classes also a foucs for your StAIR. The concepts you cover within your presentation are ones that students struggle with on occasion and your project allows for an independent student review when needed.
You did a nice job adding additional resources for exploration throughout the presentation. I thought the UDL principles were sufficiently met along with the addition of quizzes to support learning. There were no problems with any of the links but I do worry about opening up the web through additional links with young students.

I really enjoyed this resource. The powerpoint gives a variety of types of media such as articles, videos, and pictures. There are fun transitions that would make the powerpoint more exciting. I also was impressed by the actions linked to the words on the quizzes.

This is a great resource when teaching about changes in the Earth's surface. I appreciate that the objectives for this resource are listed at the beginning. I like that the feedback for each question is on the same page instead of going to a new page. This resource includes links to videos, games, and more information, as well as colorful diagrams and pictures. I do worry about some of the transitions between pages and how the words fly on the screen. I know some of my students will be distracted by those.
