PCMS students and Chromebooks.

Polk County Middle School (PCMS) sixth graders are making good use of the school’s newly purchased Chromebooks.

Students in Mrs. Scherping’s English Language Arts class used the Google Chromebooks to research Archaic and Paleo Cultures of North America. Students accessed information on their assigned cultures, took notes, recorded the citation information, and then put their notes onto graphic organizers.

They used the organized information to write a thesis statement and a report on their research. This research project supported the sixth grade social studies curriculum by allowing students to apply what they have already learned about ancient cultures.
