We used our divergent thinking to SCAMPER a pencil. The ideas were incredible! The kids also flexed their convergent thinking muscles with a choice of a Grid Logic Puzzle or a Perplexor.
The kids learned about Global Goal 4-Quality Education. They watched a brief overview of the Goal and then a picture book, Armando and the Blue Tarp School. The kids were very surprised about the barriers to education that exist for kids in other countries. They did some research about their own country's progress toward meeting the Quality Education Goal.
We watch the Global Read Aloud Week 3 video with Kelly Yang. The kids were deep thinkers about the tough situations our main characters faced in this section of the book.
We continued our Mindfulness Practice with Easy 2 Minute Mindfulness.
