We read Chapter 16 in our book, "What a Difference a Day Makes" to find out about the results of the Sputnik launch and the end of West Computing.
We read a few articles about NASA in the news. One was about the launch of a rocket called the "SS Katherine Johnson". Another was about one of the first African American astronauts. The final article was about the youngest ever astronaut, a 29 year old physician's assistant that will act as the Mission Medic.
We used our convergent thinking skills to solve a Fallen Phrase puzzle with a quote from Katherine Johnson. The kids did a fantastic job, especially in collaborating to get it solved! They used their divergent thinking to create solutions to various tasks in "Star Bright". I love their creativity!
HW: Finish Starbright and Fallen Phrase puzzle if not already done.
Until next time,
