We stretched our convergent thinking skills with a logic puzzle-no grid this time! We also used Edmodo to watch a movie about "The Engineering Process" and created a Padlet. Check out their responses here.
Finally, we used Edmodo to view a ThingLink about the setting our novel.
We used so many of our skills to get started on a practice Design Challenge: "Tile Design". The kids collaborated to define a problem to solve, decide on possible constraints of their task, brainstorm possible design ideas, evaluate ideas, and decide on a final design. We will create our final Tile Designs next week (working on card stock, not actual tiles). Check out their great work below:
We had three groups working on Hands On Equations at their own levels. Some were finishing up our Assessment, others had moved on to a review of Lesson 14, and our two new guys were moving ahead to Lesson 2 using our Hands On Equations app. The HOE app is a great way to practice these skills at home. Returning students would be working on HOE Level 2, and soon HOE Level 3.
We learned about idioms today. This is a great way to make connections between real life and reading, while exploring the various ways language can communicate our ideas.
HW: Edmodo: "What were the best and worst parts of the Tile Design Project today, and why?"
Until next week,
