PRESENTATION

 

Watch this video about fish

0:00
yeah
0:07
fish do you know where fish live
0:11
that's right fish live underwater how can they do that
0:18
I hear you ask well it's because fish have gills fish use their gills to suck
0:25
up water and extract oxygen just like how we breathe in air fish have fins and
0:38
Tails that go whoosh whoosh whoosh
0:45
so they can swim really well there are lots of different types of fish some
1:00
fish are great at hiding
1:10
and some are very colorful
1:21
there are straight beery fish
1:26
yeah
1:30
and blue fish with yellow stripes
1:37
blackfish with blue highlights
1:48
and tiny little fish
1:56
parrot fish have really strong teeth that they use to grind up coral
2:11
crunch crunch crunch
2:17
these huge groups of fish are called schools
2:22
look at them all move together that's impressive
2:27
a great place to see fish is at an aquarium
2:31
would you like to see a school of fish swimming underwater at an aquarium
2:37

PRACTICE
 
Read the following text
 

Fish have been on the Earth for over 500 million years – long before even the dinosaurs roamed the planet. There are over 25,000 species – more than all the species of amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals combined. 

  • A fish is an animal which lives and breathes in water. All fish are vertebrates (have a backbone) and most breathe through gills and have fins and scales.
  • Fish are cold-blooded, which means their internal body temperature changes as the surrounding temperature changes.
  • Fish have a specialized sense organ called the lateral line which works much like radar and helps them navigate in dark or murky water.
  • Fish have excellent senses of sight, touch, taste and many possess a good sense of smell and ‘hearing’. Fish feel pain and suffer stress just like mammals and birds.
  • Fish eat other fish, fish eggs, mollusks, aquatic plants, algae, zooplankton, terrestrial insects, water birds, turtles, frogs, snakes and mice
  • In some species the males and females have different shaped bodies or different coloring; in other species there is no visible difference.
  • Fish reproduce laying eggs.

PRODUCTION

Now you have to design a mind map including the main characterisitics of fish.

 

0:00
own right as we're seeing here
0:03
is armed went to plan on and tool
0:06
that text to mind map an into online graphic organizer
0:11
creator and it's free with no membership required size suggests that
0:15
you take advantage of it and the key to text to my math innes
0:19
simplicity its lead to higher still
0:22
is very simple and for somebody who's
0:26
not very good with technology
0:30
I am you can definitely work year-round this because I can
0:33
I'm a lot of people easy to make my maps
0:37
additive bulleted lists as you can see here on the left
0:40
is the bulleted list arm
0:43
listing the months of the year I'm how I can edit it is I can go ahead and delete
0:48
this
0:49
and put mine on and it will show up like this
0:54
on and what you can do means good options
0:58
and we can go ahead and call these outsell
1:03
i doing my header hello and goodbye in different languages
1:08
and I game spanish-english and Chinese
1:12
you can move it around to Jesse anyway
1:15
you are running funky year more importer
1:18
I'm I can I like this look to any
1:22
cell when I can't hear is Lochbaum
1:25
long they can still be moved around right now
1:29
but they don't shake home I can going
1:33
and if the fun cell planned you this one
1:36
in NC I'm sometimes it spreads you can just go ahead
1:40
what's more I can change a science
1:45
oMG I hadn't
1:49
123 so
1:52
them real I can change color
1:55
you can go ahead
2:00
sneak in any color you want hammer other hand for
2:04
and you can change the branches that
2:07
as well now
2:11
I can also change the line color and likened to look a little more distinct
2:16
I'll go ahead and make him
2:18
Jack Black can also change the world I'll go ahead
2:24
with me im and
2:28
that is really all you need to do you know in
2:32
mine text to my nap and down here
2:36
you can fill me in and by saving on
2:39
you can change in style to your map and you can also put in your email in case
2:44
you lose the map
2:45
home and so I just cleaned
2:52
Nargis
2:55
and think the mindmap are
3:01
grateful that is not working but what will happen is if you just give an email
3:05
address
3:06
you know give you an URL that you can see even come back to the email
3:10
addresses just sell
3:11
if you lose that URL they can help you
3:14
find it by sending you an email for it you can also see a man I forgot to show
3:18
you that
3:19
you now on
3:24
and then you can also download it you can just amor image for gallant PDF
3:29
this makes it really nice for printing and
3:33
so yeah time I would say
3:37
overall on educators can really benefit from
3:41
using this program and it's a great program to use like with a smart
3:46
birdbrain you have the entire class
3:48
and you're trying to brainstorm a topic early concept
3:51
it can see a lot of time because you can go ahead and copy in peace now trying to
3:55
text while
3:56
from a text file into the empty column on the left right here
4:00
like I didn't I'm
4:03
and it's nice that you can save it as a PDF file
4:08
I'm students can just you know refer back to it
4:12
on whenever they need to and I also think it's great for working in small
4:16
groups
4:17
mom interest in if students are working together on a project
4:20
they can organize and manage it by making a text to mind map it's also
4:26
great for as a guide for writing I'm when students are
4:30
mapping out the ideas and topics they wanna read about
4:34
on and this is also a risk taker visual learners
4:37
I'm there are some drawbacks to it an
4:41
as you can see here an
4:44
this space is only so big if your risk its on
4:47
to be more than about 18 lines long on
4:50
you'll then have to starts crawling up and down through it and they can get
4:55
really busy on here
4:56
an again you could just see him out
4:59
and and one other drawback is that the only have
5:04
that reformat which can come to be a limitation
5:07
when trying to do some really serious work
5:10
an but other than that I think it's a great simple web 2.0 tool
5:15
and I would definitely suggest using this in your classroom
