Kindergarten-Push & Pull Online (cont.)
Learning to log in to the computers can be a tedious process, but once the students have it down, logging in will be a snap. We spent another week working toward this important goal, but once in, students had the opportunity to explore push & pull through online games.
1st Grade-Hiding in Plain Site
We continued our unit on animal adaptation by learning about camouflage. The students were the birds (predators) and searched for worms (prey). After catching the worms (colored craft sticks), students filled in a graph that showed the number of worms caught and their color. We also looked at web images of camouflaged animals and searched for them in their habitats.
2nd Grade-Fry an Egg on the Sidewalk
The students followed a Mystery Science exploration about materials that insulate and conduct. They tested different materials to determine which material would be the best for lifting a hot pan.
3rd Grade-Rosie Revere (cont.)
We continued work on our Flying Machine designs and Google Doc. The students learned how to format the document and type a paragraph explaining the design.
4th Grade-Crayons Rock (cont.)
Igneous-crayons-rocks were exposed after we peeled back the aluminum foil to see how our rocks formed after being subjected to their hot water "lava" exposure. The students continued working on their presentations in Educreations on the iPads.
5th Grade-Catch Up
The students worked toward completing any unfinished assignments in Google Classroom. When finished, they continued their progress on Code.org and were able to play coding games with Minecraft, Frozen, and Star Wars.
