Last week, students started DARE with Officer Fulton. In the first lesson, they were working on Resistance Strategies. Students were given a situation by Officer Fulton that they had to use resistance strategies to overcome.
In Social Studies this quarter, our essential question is "What lasting effects have travel and interactions had on the spread of culture?" In the student's language, "Why does history matter?" We have been looking at lasting effects of historical events to prove "Why history matters," specifically, exploration, the 13 colonies, and the American Revolution/Revolutionary War.
Students collaborated in groups and wrote lasting effects for each event on post-it. Groups shared out and students critiqued each other's answers. It was great to see students ask for more details or to be more specific and clear!
Students also worked with the Foundry Gurus to create Fraction Pizzas based on their given situations. Students had to answer critical thinking questions about their pizzas, create equations, and write a follow-up word problem that relates to their original situation. Students did a great job thinking critically, collaborating, and persevering!
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
