Unfortunately due to conferences we had another short day this week. However, even with our limited time together students were able to exercise their cognitive, divergent, and evaluative thinking skills. Students completed a challenging logic puzzle to solve who stole the Halloween candy. The class read further in Chasing Vameer, and shared various opinions on who, what, when and where are involved in the painting theft. Classmates needed to justify their opinions with current information from our reading. If time allowed students used their divergent skills for a pentomino transformation.
Time was spent on explaining the mystery project. For homework students are to decided on their project choice and presentation, and can begin working on it. Next week students need to return signed project note.
