Chromebooks at Howe Manning

With a generous grant provided by the Middleton Board of Trade, Howe Manning received 25 Acer 13in. Chromebooks.  Chromebooks are similar to laptops where students can access the internet and their Google Apps for Education account.

Our media specialist Ellen Reusch worked with students in grades 3-6 to access databases for research.  She has worked extremely hard creating a list of resources for students to use to assist them in their research.

Today students participated in a scavenger hunt for the database "Infobits".

Students investigated the Infobits database and had to find information about various topics.  They found the year that Van Gogh was born, different breeds of horses, the capitol of Vietnam, and many other facts.  They really enjoyed the search and found it extremely easy to use the website.
