Today my 3rd grade students are creating powerpoints explaining the games they created. This PBL has helped them discover information of certain language topics (meanings of words, punctuation, parts of speech, and literary devices - especially homophones), working together, following directions, and some technology skills (create powerpoint and create picture in paint). Students are engaged and ready to share the knowledge they have constructed. This PBL activity has really allowed me to see all of the things available when using problem-based learning. Even (or especially) the rough start to this project taught me about PBL activities! Examples of their work and thinking can be seen on their blog which is listed below:
