Winter Wonderland Hands-On Day
Today was our hands-on day and we have worked so hard! We tied in some winter things, but kept right on working on the standards we are studying on currently. Our first station focused on analyzing a drama and students had to work together to analyze a play from our Storyworks. The second station was analyzing an article "Race Against Death" and students had to find which paragraphs certain sentences would fit best in and it was super tough! The third station was a science station and students learned about the soil horizons and we made edible soil- it was pretty yummy. The fourth station was IXL and students worked on math standards. The fifth station was another science station that focused on sorting cards according to whether it was an example of weathering, erosion, or deposition. The last station was a Winter Wonderland Poetry Scavenger Hunt that focuses on using figurative language and finding examples of it in the winter poems.
