Description:

Students will create a GoAnimate clip using their tablets.  They will create cartoons to showcase what they know about heat transfer. Each group will be in charge of researching and creating a conversation between two cartoons about one type of heat transfer.  The goal of this project is for the students to explain what they know about heat transfer and create a Web 2.0 project.

Students will:

  • write a conversation between two people.  One of those people will explain or teach the other about the assigned vocabulary word.  In the conversation, you will introduce the topic, explain/give the definition of the word, and give an example of the word to show how it works in real life.  The conversation has to be at least 5 lines/speech bubbles long.
