Hello Stemtastic Friends! I hope everyone is staying warm!
The past two weeks, students have been working on their Explorer Hall of Fame/Hall of Lame Persuasive Speeches. Their challenge was to research an explorer and based on his actions and lasting effects of his contributions, decide if he belongs in the Hall of Fame or Hall of Lame. They needed to create a graphic and speech to persuade their classmates. They also had to create a map. You can find a copy of the project by clicking here.
In math class, we worked on modeling the multiplication of fractions. Have you every used K-5 Math Teaching Resources? It has great worksheets aligned by Common Core Standard. I must admit, I do not use a lot of worksheets in my classes, but I do really like their model worksheets.
I also discovered a new way to send my weekly parent emails. Smore is such a fun and easy way to publish gorgeous weekly updates! Below is my first attempt. Have an amazing week everyone!
