I found a few extra pictures on my camera that I haven’t done anything with yet, so I thought I’d share some of the activities we’ve been doing in class. This one of my student’s geometry zoo from my Buggy About Geometry unit where students have to create a zoo using different geometric terms. I think out of all my geometry activities this and the “I Have Who Has” game are their two favorites.
We’ve also been working on our biography posters that I bought from Scholastic. My students have LOVED every second on this project, and I have to say I always kind of want to make one myself:)
This is my class conducting a science experiment outside from my heat experiments collection. It’s always hard for me to teach my heat unit during January and February, because so many of the experiments I want to do require us to go outside and need sunny days. However, I’ve gotta follow that curriculum map, so I have to be ready to go whenever we have a nice day. Today, we learned about how different colors absorb heat. We made pockets out of white, black, blue, and red construction paper and place thermometers inside the pockets and let the sit outside for about 15 minutes. (After looking at this picture, I obviously should have also shown students how to place the thermometer inside the pocket correctly.)
