We used our convergent thinking skills to put the clues together and solve some logic puzzles. First we did "Who Gets Which Gift? together and then the kids solved "Lost Toys" independently. Because we did so well with those, we tackled a real logic puzzle with a grid. This "Transportation" puzzle was challenging for some, so we will definitely do more practice with these types of puzzles.
We also used our detective skills to solve a mystery in "Encyclopedia Brown's The Amazing Race" video. The kids LOVED the video! It was exciting to see the character from our stories come alive on the screen! The kids tried to identify the clues as we went along to solve the mystery before the end.
We extended our work with variables to solve simple number sentences. Some were pretty tough, but we kept at it until we got it done!
We had fun transforming 4 Leaf clover drawings into something new! Check out their amazing ideas in the hall by our classroom! So creative!
We reviewed what each multiple intelligence means with a short video. You can watch it here. Then we took a multiple intelligence survey and created a graph from our surveys. It was interesting to see how the results differed for each child.
HW: Draw yourself doing ONE activity from one of your strong multiple intelligences.
