We had a terrific week in Project GATE.
GATE math students began unit six instruction. We used Google Forms to create a research question and collect data. Then, we used Google Sheets to create graphs and analyze data. Most students created pie charts, though we did have a a few bar graphs as well. This was a hugely successful experience for all! We reviewed strategies for adding three numbers together, and I introduced our new thinking skills unit -- visual/spatial perception. Students especially enjoyed Adventures of a Dot.
GATE reading students are busy studying the first Thanksgiving. They are conducting a webquest adventure, which covers many trimester two learning goals. We continue to study character perspectives, as well as the connection between historical events. We began our first thinking unit of the year as well -- word logic. Students fell in love with Letter Getters today. Wait until you see these word puzzles! Finally, we began our trimester two genre study on folklore. Here are a few wonderful folklore sites for children:
Have a great weekend!
