They used their convergent thinking skills to take careful notes of every detail of the Crime Scene. Later in the classroom, we add their notes about the evidence to our Crime Scene Map. We'll use this in the next class to try to investigate our suspects. We also honed our observation skills with some Hidden Pictures. The kids loved these!
Later on, we continued our convergent thinking and added critical thinking to help us solve some cryptograms. The kids were amazing in figuring out the message.
We also read a chapter in our book and used our evaluative and critical thinking skills to answer some tough questions about the book. Our main characters had a close call when a class from their school showed up at the Museum where they are hiding. Talk about tense moments!
Remember, no Target next week because of the School Holiday on Election Day.
Until next time,
