We worked on our collaboration skills with two teambuilding activityies, "The Marshmallow & Knife Challenge" and Silent "ABC Line-Up". It was definitely an interesting process, and the kids learned a lot about teamwork and problem solving.
We kicked off our unit today with a few introductory videos, which you can take a look at on our Genius Hour Glog.
The kids had a great time beginning our new novel, Ungifted. The kids enjoyed hearing about a boy, who has a knack for wild ideas that usually land him in trouble. We followed up our first two chapters with a divergent thinking activity "Create a Scene-Choose your Character". Take a look at the results outside our classroom.
HW: Edmodo-Share your Genius Hour Project idea & discuss with your parents. Tell what their response is.
Until next time,
