3rd graders at Yargo Elementary School had an opportunity to include a live-streaming session with their United States Senator Johnny Isakson as part of the social studies component of an larger Project-Based Learning (PBL) unit.  The PBL unit was developed in a local professional development course over the summer by Mrs. Wages and Mrs. Idsardi.

The senator was very impressed with the quality of our students’ questions and just how well organized our use of video conferencing was.  He has invited us to schedule more sessions with students from Barrow County, and so if you have an interest in incorporating some time with Senator Isakson and your students to chat, please contact the STEAM Integration Coordinator, Lee Bane.  See the session with the Yargo 3rd graders and Sen. Isakson right here.
