We are in the publishing stage of our non-fiction bee books! After researching, drafting, revising, and editing, we are finally using laptops to type our final copies. First, we learned how to safely open and close the laptops. Then, we learned how to use a keyboard. In particular, we learned how to use the shift key to capitalize letters and get different types of punctuation.
We also finished the final drafts of our scientific bee drawings. We used light tables and windows to trace the best features of our drafts. We learned how to make different textures with our colored pencils to mimic the hair on bees’ bodies.
