We continued our Bridge research with our webquest and a video, Understanding Bridges. This will give us our basic bridge information, so we can work on some bridge building and other hands-on activities.
We created a mural of our favorite scenes from our novel, The Way to Stay in Destiny. It turned out great! Check it out, if you're in the hall next week for Field Day!
We worked more on our growth mindset and learned about how to overcome potential roadblocks to achieving a growth mindset. The kids had excellent strategies for reaching their goals!
We worked more on Hands On Equations: Assessment corrections, new Lesson 14, and Word Problems involving Distance.
Finally, we did a fun activity called Back-to-Back drawing. The kids worked with partners. One was the drawer, the other was the describer who had to explain how to draw the secret image. Drawing that simple bridge was MUCH harder than any of them thought it would be. We talked about how important it is to communicate clearly and ask questions to clarify directions. Check out the fun below:
Until next time,
