We stretched our convergent thinking skills with analogies. We also continued our balloon research to finish up our Balloon Fact books. We used our divergent thinking skills to create sketches of our Ultimate Parade Transportation.
We continued our reading of Twenty-One Balloons, focusing on a description of the professor's giant balloon and an unexpected visitor in the story.
We worked on our mindfulness practice with Cloud Breathing. This is a great video that kids can use to feel calm when they need to relax.
We also learned about our Multiple Intelligences and the parts of our brains.
Connections & Research:
We lifted off our next research topic with some time in the Computer Lab to find out all about the 1880s, which is the setting of our novel.
