This week learners continued learning about different ways to express themselves. Learners worked in groups to perform a classic story. We talked about how drama is a way of self expression. Learners read a classic story with their group and then performed for the class. We have also been working on expressing ourselves through creative writing. Learners have gone through the writing process of writing, editing and revising with a partner and completing a final draft.
In math, learners have been working on identifying exact points on a number line.
Today, learners worked in partners to explore how matter can change from a solid to a liquid. Learners had to rescue a Lego man that was frozen inside of an ice cube. They discovered that salt was the best tool to use. We also experimented with different materials to see what could keep an ice cube in the form of a solid for the longest amount of time.
