We learned about Sketchnoting, which is also called Visual Notetaking. We worked on using different techniques to accent our titles for visual notetaking while watching this video: "Fifty Cool Titles".
We began our Game Design Unit with a couple of cool videos: "What is a Game?" and "Ancient Games". The kids also used our Target Glog to research Ancient Games. Next, we shared a key point and a WOW fact in a "Whip Around". The kids enjoyed this new format of hearing others' ideas in a quick format. Later on, we used our facts to play a divergent thinking game called "Scratch". Be sure to ask about it!
We tried "Move the Pasta Challenge". There was lots of positive teamwork, and much success using clever strategies to solve the problem.
We began our Mindfulness Practice with "Still Quiet Place". The kids learned how to imagine a quiet place when they need a moment of peace or relaxation.
