This is a fantastic idea! I know this is designed for a first grade classroom, but I can easily see it being adapted to multiple grade levels. Positive points to this lesson:

1. Integrates new technology which uses audio and visual skills

2. Teaches students the basics of research with real-world applications

3. Lots of support for students that may need throughout the process

4. Includes a checklist for the student's knowledge of PhotoStory

Great job!

this is a fantastic lesson, nancy!  subject integration-writing, science and technology-is always a plus.  i like how all 4 parts of communication are utilized-listening, speaking, reading and writing-within this project that the kids are creating.  students can use creativity to create their presentation.  very motivational to apply the skills learned in the form of a presentation.  teaching the lesson by modeling is an ideal teaching method.  the checklist is a perfect authentic assessment.  my concern would be researching information of different animals for 26 different students(first graders . . . yikes!).  maybe choose the same animal to research or work in small groups reseaching the same animal.  overall, an easy plan to follow.  thanks for sharing!
