Wonderful Wednesday!
Due tomorrow:

Summative project: Students are to create their own mechanism using at least one simple machine. Students are to create something that does not already exist and needs to have a purpose/function for humans. These are to be completed at home and on February 18 students will present their mechanism to the class. Students are also to complete the writing portion at home. 

Half the students did the Simple Machines Workshop in the morning and half in the afternoon. When students were with Ms. Jaskolka they worked on Math and UOI.

During math, students used 3-D shapes to build objects with play dough. Students chose an object out of their math book to make. Students first needed to figure out the 3-D shapes that their object was made of. Then students used play dough to make each shape. After, students explained the 3-D shapes that they used. After, students chose one 3-D shape to make out of play dough and then students wrote an explanation to a friend how they would go about making their shape. When students were finished, they looked at two pictures and determined the 3-D shapes hidden within.

During UOI, students continued working on their Simple Machines Flip Flap book, showing their understanding of our current unit of inquiry.
