During this lessson students will be introduced to and be read an electronic book based on grade level social studies standards. After listening to and watching the electronic book presentation, students will be given comprehension questions . With the minions student voting system, children will provide the answers to these questions. The student who obtains the most points during this activity will be able to pick the next book that we will read as an incentive.

Students will also be asked to put pictures from the story in chronilogical order using the interactive mimio board and pen.

Our follow up activity will deal with sentence grammar. Given words in isolation, the students will be using the interactive board and pen to put words (from our reading) into sentences, making certain that the order of these words are grammatically correct.

The possibilities for lessons using the mimioboard bundle are endless and have been especially effective for students with special needs.
