Publishing Original Works

With the help of school media specialist Teri Polis, Babylon Elementary School kindergarten and second-grade students are working to become published authors.

To complement their science curriculum and upcoming trip to the aquarium, the kindergarten students researched aquatic animals using iPads. They investigated and documented information about the animals’ bodies, habitats, diets and life cycles before writing statements to share in a class e-book. They also sketched original drawings depicting their marine animals and recorded a voiceover to highlight their research findings.

The second-grade classes completed a similar e-book project as they learned how to research using the WISER method and create animal riddles. Their stories focused on animal habitats.

Copies of the published books are accessible via the grade level’s tab on the library e-board.
