Second grade students read about a community worker on Pebble Go and in books, taking notes on what the worker does, where they work, their training, and special equipment. Using Explain Everything app on the iPad, students found an image of their worker and took a photo of themselves to "cut out" and insert onto the worker image. Then they recorded what they had learned about the worker. Here are Ms. Wegley's student community workers:
