Mystery Partner Project
The Fifth Graders will work on a Mystery Partner project to reveal who they are to their Kindergarten partners. Fifth graders will write four clues about themselves - each clue with a matching graphic is entered using Powerpoint on its own flap of a folding square. The answer is entered on a hidden tab beneath the folded square. The Kindergarten partner (with a teacher's assistance) will open one flap at a time, trying to guess who their partner is based on the clues.
Below is the Mystery Partner Form students need to fill out and bring it to computer class on Wednesday September 14th.

I'll demonstrate to the students how I approach these videos. I typically watch the entire video through the first time. Then I watch it again, but pause after each step. Once I've completed that step, I watch the next step.
This is what the students will be graded on:
