We made connections and investigated more deeply into frog anatomy. The kids used their convergent thinking skills and evaluative thinking to solve the "Chattahoochee Zoo" mystery. It was pretty difficult, but they got it done.
We evaluated each other's projects to determine what is well done and what areas need work. The kids worked hard during our Project Time to incorporate more in-depth information into their presentations. We will be presenting our Projects next week, after testing in the morning. Kids are welcome to take their projects home to fine-tune, add more details, or practice their presentations. They can double check the Target Glog-4th Grade Page to evaluate themselves using the Frog Project Rubric.
We tackled new lessons in Hands On Equations and learned to do more challenging word problems. Whew! It's much harder to use our algebra skills on a word problem than it is to solve basic equations. We'll get there with more practice!
We read a few more chapters of our book and challenged ourselves with critical thinking questions using our favorite game, Kahoot.
HW: Edmodo-What final steps do you need to be ready to present your Frog Project next week?
Until next time,
