Also, we are talking about our successes and failures of working with other group members. They are seeing what it means to work together and deal with being led, being held accountable and responsible for the work they are to do. I am seeing tremendous growth. The students are genuinely grasping information and being able to re state what they are learning.
We are heading into researching biomes next. This will be a fun one. They will be researching biomes and compiling information to use to understand what plants/animals are specific to each one and then which are endangered.
As the rubrics and info sheets are created they will be added to the homework page. Today they started vocab for unit 6.
I want to thank the visitors that we had show up for our presentations. While they are short, the students have plenty of time to share their knowledge. The visitors that ask questions are the best!!!
