4th Grade Cog
Never Stop Thinking and Learning
This week in 4th Grade Cog. (Oct 17th - Oct 21st)
It was an another great week in 4th grade cog. In the beginning of the week we discussed all of the 21st Century Skills and 16 Habits of Mind needed to solve a logic mystery. The students really enjoy collaborating and communicating with each other to solve the logic mystery. We also completed extensions to word study suffix "able" as a multimedia project. On Friday, we started our latest P.B.L. "Create an Animal". The students had to research different biomes and adaptations to create an animal that could have lived. The students will create a fossil view of the animal, then an artists recreation of the animal and finally describe a day in the fictional creatures life. The classes will complete the multimedia P.B.L. next week.
Student Success Skills (21st Century Skills) we will use all year!
16 Habits of Mind are essential for students to use in the classrooms of today
