Divergent & Critical Thinking:
Our stations were all about the frogs today! We got started on frog vocabulary words and read a Frog Fable today. The kids had to analyze it to figure out the Moral of the story and then share an example of that moral in real life. We also tested our fluency with an activity to list as many green things as possible. Our final station was create a caption for a crazy frog photo. The ideas were creative and SO funny!
We built connections by viewing a video called, "The Last Golden Frog" about how scientists are trying to save an endangered species of frogs. Pretty interesting stuff!
We honed our research knowledge with a presentation from Mrs. Phillips about the most useful sites to find great frog information and images. She gave us so many good ideas!
We 're still working hard to make more progress in our Hands-On-Equations. The new kids are moving along quickly! Our others are moving ahead to make progress on increasingly more challenging problems.
