Third grade students in Stephanie Zelinski’s class at Idle Hour Elementary School used green screen technology to further enhance their nonfiction research of animals.

During a nonfiction writing unit of study, the students researched and then wrote books about animals. They then took their writing a step further. They pretended to be news reporters and animal experts and wrote scripts to report their research in front of a green screen. The reports were then watched by peers who learned amazing facts about the animals researched.

Idle Hour students Emilie Mannola and Landon O’Donnell made an impact on the environment and the Long Island community through attendance at the 11th annual I Love My Park Day, held on May 7. The students braved the wind and rain to plant dozens of plants to beautify Heckscher State Park.

I Love My Park Day is held annually the first weekend in May and draws thousands of volunteers across New York State to assist in preparing public lands for spring use and enjoyment through cleanup, enjoyment and beautification projects.

The Idle Hour Elementary School faculty and administration congratulates Emilie and Landon on their quest to beautify the Long Island community.
