We learned today that, if we could have a Super Power lots of kids would want SUPER SPEED!! Others wanted INVISIBILITY, the Power to HEAL, the Power to FLY, the Power to BREATHE UNDER WATER, the Power to CLONE themselves, and several wanted SUPER STRENGTH!
We also learned that some favorite restaurants are MAD TACO, FIT 2 B Thai’d, China Buffet, and Five Guys!
We had a nice opportunity Friday to share our Extended Name tags and learn little things about eachother! Please check out the name tags on display above our cubbies.
Finally in our own building! Yeah! It is great to be back and we are wasting no time getting into the full swing of things! We began our “Double E” time this week! Double E stands for Engineers and Explorers. During this time we have half of our Upper Unit students working with Heidi R. and Julie as they begin the Explorers unit (Social Studies). The other half of the students are working with Elizabeth and me as we begin our Engineers unit (Science). After about 5 weeks, we will switch groups so everyone will have a chance to be an Engineer and an Explorer! Here are a few pics of our engineers hard at work designing a foot orthosis.
Don’t forget to send me “selfies” of you reading! I’ll post them as I receive them! Happy Reading!
Best wishes 6th graders!
Here are some great pics from our last few days!
Have a wonderful summer and we’ll see you in August!
They brought in their raw materials – no prepping, no measuring, just raw materials. They had 10 minutes to construct their Trojan Horse that met the following criteria: must be hollow, must be between 9-12″ tall, must be between 9-12″ long, and must be free standing. Did their polis succeed? Were they able to come together and construct a Trojan Horse that met this criteria? Check out our final horses which will be on display the night of Spring Concert!!
On Wednesday, Upper Unit students had their first Greek Day challenge…one challenge was reciting the GREEK ALPHABET!! One member from each city-state rolled the lucky dice to see who would recite all 24 letters of the Greek alphabet…wow! They rocked it! After the alphabet there were other “Greek” challenges: The Greek olive challenge, Greek bracelet challenge, the Minotaur Maze, and the Greek cookie challenge! Everyone had a chance to take on a challenge for their city-state! They were GREAT!!
Experts on Ancient Egypt visited the Upper Unit a just before April break! They presented information about Heiroglyphics, Egyptian make-up, the mummification process, pharoahs, and more! Whew…what a knowledgable group of researchers and presenters! Projects are on display in the hallway near Jane’s classroom. Come check ’em out if you haven’t already!
