Fairy Tale Adaptations

3K has turned into a writing colony where students are independently planning, writing, and revising an adapted fairy tale by a specific deadline. Students have chosen their favorite fairy tale to adapt by making an impactful change to the story line. Some students have changed the characters, the setting, and the actions in the story. Writers are focusing on writing descriptive stories that include action, dialogue, and descriptions to make their stories come alive!

Measurement

This week we started our math measurement unit. We reviewed measuring using the metric system and the U.S. customary system. We used our mathematical skills to measure different objects around the room, including our arm spans. After taking our arm span measurements, we brought together all of our data to analyze. Students analyzed our data using line plots and frequency charts. 3K mathematicians then found the minimum, maximum, median, and mode of our data set.
