McKenna Students Explore History One Letter at a Time

Fourth graders used modern technology to take a trip back in time at McKenna Elementary School. Students in Jennifer Gonzalez’s class traveled to Colonial America by creating digital ABC books.

Each group had to come up with one word relating to Colonial times for every letter of the alphabet. They focused on culture, historical events, lifestyles, people and professions from centuries ago. Students used Book Creator on their Chromebooks to create their projects. Each slide included a definition of the word and an image.
