The class was given a rubric for all the final expectations for their poster board map. Students still need to have their final road trip project completed by Thursday. Students need to have a sketch of the US and all states that are included in their road trip on a poster board. They must also have a piece of paper that includes a paragraph explaining each site they have chosen for their road trip.
Students are working on a powerpoint presentation that includes 8 behavioral and structural adaptations for the animal they are creating. They must have bullet points and not sentences in their powerpoint. They must have detailed explanations in the speakers note section of each slide explaining why and how they chose each adaptation. There is no limit on number of slides, but the information must be clear, detailed, and accurate.
Students need to take the information they have received from class and outside sources and create 5 step plan of success for 6th through 8th grade. Each grade should have five detailed bullet points that express how they will be successful in each grade and what they will do to improve each year.
We covered haiku poems in class today. We wrote 3 as a class and assigned them 4 haiku poems to write on their own. The topics for the haiku poems are 1) Sunset 2) Storm 3) Grass 4) Bees. These are due tomorrow morning in Google Classroom.
As always, if students use their time wisely in class, they should have little to nothing to take home. However, this is not the case for many students. We encourage you to go through their assignment with them. We have started writing in agendas at the end of the day. Students should have the assignments and due dates written in their agendas. Each student was given an agenda at the beginning of the school year. If they have lost it, then they need to figure out how to keep track of the assignments in class. A notebook will work just as well if kept organized.
Finally, we would like to leave you with a quote today from American activist, Peace Pilgrim, “If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought.”
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
IN THIS CLASS, IT IS NOT ABOUT WHAT WE KNOW, IT IS ABOUT WHAT WE DO WITH WHAT WE KNOW!
