Take A PEAK
September 17, 2013
I = Interest. Is the topic interesting to you?
S=Size. The topic isn't too huge and it's not too tiny
S= Simplicity. The information you need isn't way over your head, or too easy.
A=Access. Information about the topic isn't hard to find.
Researched information will be used to share what they learned through written work, a 3-D display and a virtual museum. Today we looked at a few examples of virtual museums and 3-D displays from previous PEAK students.
PGD (Personal Growth and Development)
Students published their six word memoir. We combined them into Power Point then converted it to another private view youtube video. Click on the link below to see their memoirs!
Topic Study: Students continue to build their background knowledge as they take notes on their topic using Evernote.
Science: Students are taking the role of "scientist" seriously. After analyzing the class data from the experiment we realized one of the variables was not constant after all. I asked the class what they thought real scientists would do in a situation like this and they unanimously agreed they would conduct the experiment again--so that's what we will be doing next week--such a smart class!!
