Learning Lab Notes
Week 5- Inquiry and Goal Setting
We began our inquiry study this week by researchinig an important day in American History, September 3. Students were given clues about the day and were set loose to figure out the importance of the day. Inquirers had to do their own research in a short period of time and create a presentation quickly utilitzing critical thinking and creativity.
On Friday, inquiring minds also began studying continental shift, Pangea, and nomadic people.
Students use an iPad tool of their choice to create a presentation about September 3rd.
Investingating New Math Games
Math Comes Alive
Jones Math (6th Grade)- Mathematicians this week learned and practiced scientific notation. Math partners developed a review game in Kahoot for the class to review concepts in Unit 2 such as place value of very large and small numbers, forms of writing numbers (exponential, standard, scientific, number and word), and computation in long multiplication and division. On Friday, partners and trios started investigating ideas for planning math projects.
Students created their own Kahoot on a concept in Unit 2 for test review.
Aiden, Bradley, and Ezra have ideas about a project on scale.
