Kansas Day Podcasts

Kansas Day was last week, and we learned about the symbols that are important to Kansas. In groups, students researched, wrote scripts, rehearsed, created visuals, and produced iMovie podcasts. I'm not joking when I say that the students were in charge of producing these podcasts 100%! I was waiting for our iPads to get the iMovie app on them, showed them a couple things on the app, and put them to work! They were all completed in a matter of 45 minutes. Awesome! We are so grateful for the iPads, this would have taken forever on the laptops!

So sit back, grab your favorite snack, and learn about our Kansas state symbols! Like what you hear?? Leave us a comment, we love feedback!
