Weekly Objective Results

Last week we introduced division as the inverse of multiplication. All 23 students passed this objective with 80% or higher!!!:)

We completed our mythology unit with two projects. The first was to make themselves a god or goddess. The students had to explain their family tree and magical powers. Each god or goddess had to have a magical item and creature. The second project was a flip book focusing on the allusions in Greek Mythology and the characters traits of some of the more famous characters. The students did a wonderful job! They are so creative! These projects are on display in the hall and will come home at a later date.
