Next we spent the rest of our day in From the Ground Up building our walls. It was a very arduous process but students did GREAT! First I modeled everything...marking off a 4 cm wall with a 1 cm tab on each side, creating the lines for the tabs, marking off the walls using the site plan and a perpendicular card, scoring every line using scissors, folding, cutting alligator bites, drawing doors, and finally gluing the walls to the site. WHEW! I was so pleased with how they worked diligently and persevered when things didn't quite line up like they wanted. I also loved how they helped each other. None of us thought to take any pictures, but I wish you could have seen it!
Students enjoyed the other half of their Marble Jar free time today and we crowned a new Table of the Month.
For homework this week students will choose two pages to complete about the periodic table. They have a packet and one other sheet with some puzzles. Any two pages are fine. The point is to practice using the table.
Please see this FLYER about the April 19th PAGE Meeting. Tim DeCresie will be sharing information about the 2016-2019 PCS AIG Plan. Local plans must be revisited and revised every three years, so this is a great opportunity to hear about changes and have input. Dr. David White will speak about ECU college opportunities, and students will participate in the EGG DROP! I hope to see you there!
