The kids started by recording their Survivor Audition videos. I can't wait to share them all with the class next time. Then, they joined their Tribes to try their luck on the Oregon Trail again. Most groups had several mishaps to interfere with their journey to Oregon. We had a rich discussion about topics to research for greater success next time. They started research with the Target Glog and-LiveBinder. I loved the way they created shared Word documents to compile their research. Well done!
The kids used their divergent thinking skills to SCAMPER a Backpack. They are so creative! Check out their work in the photos!
The kids solved a Math Mystery today, "Charity Cheater". They had to calculate multistep problems to find out which of the participants kept some of the money they raised. Nothing gets past these kids! Cheaters were caught!
We continued our Mindfulness practice with "Why Humans Experience Anxiety?". The kids enjoyed doing a couple moments of mindful breathing.
We read two more chapters of our novel and enjoyed hearing about Sam's success in finding his grandfather's farm.
Until next time,
