In Probability we returned to last week's activities, analyzing and discussing "More Spinning Around" and "Is This A Fair Game" together. Students' did great, and they are continuing to grow in their understanding of theoretical and experimental probability.
Marketing was our focus for the rest of our day. We did lots and lots of comparing, contrasting, and examining advantages and disadvantages. We began with radio ads, finishing up last week, and then moved into four types of print ads: magazine, flyer, brochure, and newspaper. We used the print ads students brought in as a springboard for discussing what makes print ads interesting. Students then moved into reading and evaluating advantages and disadvantages of each type. We'll pick up here next week.
We had two Franklin Findings shared today, decided we like eating lunch in the STRIDE room instead of the cafeteria, and enjoyed recess in the beautiful, sunny weather.
We WILL have STRIDE next week on 11/23 since it's now a half day. Students will come to STRIDE at 8:00.
The only homework this week is to write at least a paragraph summary of Newton's First Law with examples. Students should also try to think of other real life situations where the First Law is used. They can list these on the same journal page.
