Earth's Changes StAIR

Logo for Earth's Changes StAIR
A few weeks ago, I had to create a StAIR, or Stand Alone Instructional Resource, for a graduate class I am taking through Michigan State University. At the time, my students were learning about the natural ways that the Earth changes. I thought that this would be a great topic on which to focus my StAIR project. This is intended for use with my third graders, so it is not as interactive as some of the other projects, although it does have several questions for the students to answer throughout... More

This StAIR is easy to navigate and has content presented clearly.  The slow processes advance slowly, and the rapid processes advance rapidly.  Im not sure if this was done on purpose or not.  Navigation through the frist few slides seems slow, but it all works out well overall.  I like that it reinforces vocabulary words.  I have not used it in my classroom since it is geared towards younger students.  

Technical Remarks:

works well!  A little slow through the first few slides.

This is a Stand Alone Instructional Resource on how and why the earth changes and is intended for third grade students. I really enjoyed this tutorial.  I think the author did an excellent job touching upon the various types of learning styles from the visual to the auditory to the hands on leaner.  There are many excellent visuals as well as narration throughout making it easy to understand and learn. I also liked the questions the author listed throughout to make sure her students were understanding the content.  The length was perfect and I liked that the ending referred the students to other resources for continued learning.

Technical Remarks:

This a power point presentation and from time to time the audio fades a bit.

I liked the the closing of this StAIR the best. It rewarded the students for working hard and gave options for students that were really interested in the topic for further exploration.

Technical Remarks:

The words and pictures loaded really slow and the audio did not play.
