Flight LessonStudents were presented with the following slide show (link). As we progressed through the slides the students were asked to come up with a hypothesis to explain why the things grouped under the 'Yes' column were grouped together. As they were presented with more images they revised their hypotheses. Eventually all of the groups figured out why the 'Yes' items were grouped together -- can you? Go through the slides slowly and one at a time.
The above activity lead to a discussion about the different types of flight we see in birds. I asked students to try and notice the different ways that birds fly as they are out and about this week.
Project WorkFor the past month students have been busy on their projects. The slideshow below shows some of the projects students are working on; there are a lot of students using the computer coding program Scratch to create games or animations, but there is also a lot of variety! If the slideshow isn't showing up for you, or if you'd like it full screen, then click on this link.
Thanks for checking in to see what we've been up to this week!
