After our five day vacation, we came back to school with a vengeance! In math, we started using our Fraction Kits to connect GCF & LCM to models. We also compared and ordered fractions using the kits. I like to transition from the kits to number lines since they are more practical. I found this amazing resource here.
In Social Studies, we finished up our Economics Unit with The International Trading Game. In short, each country's goal was to make money by creating shapes, but not every country had the resources they needed. Students had a blast trading, negotiating, and collaborating! It was a fabulous and fun way for students to understand trade, interdependence, specialization, competition, and other Econ terms.
We also had DARE Graduation this week. Magician Stephen Knight was the entertainment. He did an amazing job combining entertainment, magic, and a message of positive decision making. Congratulations to all our DARE graduates!
