We challenged our math understanding by applying our algebraic thinking to Error Analysis with problems similar to those we worked on last week. The kids did a good job in identifying errors and providing correct solutions.
We continued reading our Survival Novels. Our critical thinking activity was to evaluate the scariest event in the story and describe what we would have done in that situation.
We continued our Survivor Research Projects. The results are looking pretty good!
We watched the Scooby Doo movie as a backdrop for Survivor Thinking! As we watched, we chose one of the characters as our Survivor. Then we answered critical thinking questions in the form of Tweets, Emails, and a Reflection. The kids showed deep understanding of the feelings, motivation, and insights of the characters and their trait. Lots of opportunity for discussion about teamwork.
