What a fun and exciting day we had today! We started our day talking about variables in equations and wrote some equations with variables in them. We also worked on some other convergent thinking activities to warm up our brains.
We read Horton Hatches the Egg and talked about what it means to be responsible and faithful to promises. We also talked about situations when people took advantage of others and how things should be handled in such situations.
We then focused on "eggs." We learned about the significance of eggs in many different cultures and then watched a PowerPoint presentation telling us about the Faberge Eggs. We looked at a book with pictures of these eggs and then designed an egg of our own using plastic eggs, "gold and silver," and "jewels. We also created a stand for our "Faberge Egg." We are very proud of our artistry!
After this, we completed an "Imagine That" sheet using our divergent thinking to turn doodles into pictures.
Homework: None this week. Due to "Art Day" next Friday, there will be no Target. We will resume classes after Spring Break. We hope everyone has a safe and restorative break!
