Using Edmodo in Science Class


This school year I am using Edmodo with both my 4th and 5th grade science classes. Sometimes, we answer simple questions and respond to each other. For this blog post I am going into detail about my 2 favorite types of Edmodo conversations. 

First, I want to make sure you know you can create a free Edmodo account for yourself. Then you invite your students to create accounts with your group code.

1. A great activity to do with intermediate students is simple research. Give them a question that they do not necessarily know the answer to. Have them google it and provide the answer plus the website they found the information. Then have students check out each other’s resources and respond with a question or thoughtful comment.

Occasionally I comment if I feel like I need to clarify something or if someone is going on a tangent. You can choose to make the Edmodo time as long or short as you wish, just change the requirements about how many people they need to respond to or how hard the question will be to research.

Please ask any questions you may have. Thanks for taking the time to read!
