Camden Children's Garden
Today Eagle Lake Elementary, Edwardsburg, is connecting to a new content provider we haven't connected to before: Camden Children's Garden. The 2nd grade students are learning about soil.
The presenter, Betsy Payne, engaged the students right away in questions and answers about soil. A little video clip showed the worms in the soil. As you can see in the picture, they have an attractive background for the presenter. The program includes many different types of visuals which makes it very interesting.
The students also made predictions about an experiment demonstrated by the presenter and then watched to see if their predictions came true. This helped to increase their understanding of how much water soil can hold.
Camden has a nice set of programs tailored specifically to several different grade levels. They also offer their programs in Spanish or English! We'll be connecting here again for sure!
