We started off using our convergent thinking with a lesson on Code.org and then moved on to our Robot Mission #2, where we programmed our robots to talk to us and respond to our greeting. Love the excellent problem-solving and collaboration we saw! This Mission was so much fun! These clever, creative kiddos had those robots saying all sorts of wacky things!
We practiced our Hands On Equations-"Legal Moves" with more algebraic thinking as we solved basic equations like 2x + 5 = x + 2x + 1. Hard to believe these 8 and 9 year olds can not only do this, but MASTER this! WOW!
We continued our mindfulness with Cloud Breathing. This is particularly relaxing, especially before bed. We also watched "Keep Moving Forward" and talked about the relationship between Inventiveness and Diligence, and how they are both needed for creative production.
We read more of House of Robots. There's a scene in the book with robots playing football, so I showed the kids a clip of "Battle Bots." They LOVED it! The kids have predicted what they think about the mysterious Black SUV that has shown up in the story.
