In Social Studies class, we completed our geography unit with a "Map About Me" project. Here is the checklist & rubric I used to assess the students. Students not only had to create a map meeting the constraints of the project, but also had a writing assignment in ELA that tied the two subjects together. The maps turned out pretty great!
In my first math class, we started rounding. I found this awesome game, Closest to 4.99, found here. I use this website all the time. Their centers & assessment tasks are amazing! In Closest to 4.99, students not only had to practice rounding, but also comparing decimals as they had to be the closest to 4.99. Students had fun and I liked the challenge of the task!
Have a STEMtastic week everyone!
