Our Solar System: Papermation

In class this term we have been learning about Science. Everyone has come up with their own inquiry ‘why’ question to investigate. We have decided that the best way to explain what have learned would be to create a papermation video. You can see an example of a papermation here.

This is the first of our videos finished, created independently by Jessica and Bethany. They chose the question “Why is Venus hotter than Mercury?” Check out their fantastic explanation. Don’t forget to leave them some feedback about their efforts!

The two nominations were for ‘Best Class Blog‘ and ‘Best audio/video podcast‘. What a great comment on the work we have been doing in the classroom, especially the podcast which is all the students work!

You can help us out now by voting for us to win in both of these categories. You can vote by visiting the Edublog Awards site and clicking on ‘vote here‘. There is only one vote allowed per day, but voting does not close until December 14 so you can vote every day until then! There is also only one vote per IP address (computer) per day. You may like to encourage friends and relatives to vote as well.
