We have had a few Math and Science activities in our room lately that we need to share about. In lieu of a chapter test in our Geometry unit, the students went on a scavenger hunt around the school searching for various geometry items, taking pictures of what they found on the iPads. They then brought their findings back to the room to work on a Pic Collage, which showed and labeled all of their Geometry items. It was fun, different, and a nice way to review not only what we studied this chapter, but how Math shows up in our everyday lives!
In Science yesterday, we reviewed what we had learned about Earthquakes, Fault Lines, and Volcanos. To explore our learning further, we made “Plate Tectonic S’mores” and “Toilet Paper Volcanos.” The kids had a blast, and of course making a mess was a bonus. 🙂
Good times were had by all. 🙂
