We began the day writing our homework in our agendas and then finishing off our Simple Machines flip flap books.
Students then had gym with Mr. Slyk.
When students returned, we spent an hour on Math today. What we focused on today was making a recognizing the skeleton of 3-D shapes. Students used straws and play dough to make a skeleton of a cube and then a shape of their choice. Students came to understand that the straws represented the edges of the shape, and the play dough represented the vertices. Students then wrote tips for a friend as to how they would go about building these shapes with straws and play dough. They also realized that we would not be able to make a skeleton for a sphere and cylinder because they do not have straight edges or vertices. When students were done, they needed to match the 3-D shape to the skeleton of the 3-D shape and explain how they knew their answer was correct (ex: I know this is a skeleton for a pyramid because it has 5 vertices and 8 edges; it has 4 triangular faces and one square/rectangular face.
After first recess and lunch, students had Music and then French.
Following second recess and lunch, students were very excited to present their mechanisms for our Simple Machines Unit. Students came up with inventive and creative mechanism! Grade job Grade 2’s!! The rest of the class will present tomorrow.
