We Completed our Robot Mission-Advanced Maneuvering with the robots programmed to go through student-created obstacle courses. It was interesting watching the kids revise their programming to modify the robot's movements.
We challenged our convergent thinking and communication skills with a Drop Quote from our novel. The kids are getting the hang of this style of puzzle. They also did a great job creating Ninja Comic Strips to go along with our book. Check out some great work outside our classroom!
We read quite a bit of our novel today! The kids used their critical thinking skills and affective skills to make predictions about the upcoming action, find text evidence to support their theories about what has happened to "E", and identify character traits that have appeared in our book.
We learned about the different types of Courage and also about Zest. The kids enjoyed our "Mortimer" read aloud to understand Zest! They reflected on times they have shown Zest and also ways in which they can be more courageous. Their insights were powerful!
