Windsor 6 Me to We iCards Explained
Produced by the Windsor 6 Media Crew: Eleanor G, Henry, Eedy, Brandon, Jacob, Matty, and Reillyninja
For our expedition, Me to We, our final
product was an iCard. All students made iCards explaining different
qualities and attributes of themselves.

1. What I Bring
I bring section of our iCards allowed us to share an important
trait through a small paragraph and a unique photo. We discovered our
traits in language arts class, and wrote short stories about our chosen
traits. Our language arts teacher helped us choose the best part
of our stories to put on our iCards. In science class we posed for our
pictures so we could show our unique traits.
2. Stats and Favorites
On the iCards students also showed their
stats and favorites. Stats included our height, our eye color,
our hair color, whether we are righty or lefty, etc. Favorites include
our favorite foods, bands, numbers, etc.
3. Genetic Wheel
The genetic wheel is a way
every student showed his or her genetic traits, such as widow's peak,
chin dimples, and left or right handedness. We
colored in our genetic traits to determine whether or
not we had
dominant or recessive traits. This led to our genetic number, which was
a way to compare
some of our traits with our peers.
4. Personal Historical
In Social Studies, we created our personal timelines which had
to include 10 facts about our lives. Other than our birth date,
the facts we chose were up to us. Eventually we put our timelines
into a computer using Pages in the computer lab. The finished
timelines were screen-captured and added to our iCards as images.
5. Making our Mini Me
For the back of the cards we made mixed-media self portraits. In math
class, we measured the different parts of our bodies (arms, legs,
torso, shoulders, and height), and then drew ourselves at 1/8th our
real size with the parts proportional. For our faces, we learned to
mask digital photos of ourselves and combine our drawings with the
photos on our laptops.
