We launched our new Unit of Inquiry about Connections to our Environment. We worked on a "See, Think, Wonder" about some new books that were out in the class. We also went on a nature walk around school to see what we could find that was living and non-living.
Our class, Ms. Holthe's Minions, and Ms. Gibbs's Ender Dragons are together for a new and exciting way to learn -- having two teachers co-teach and working with members of another class.
A picture was shown to us and and we had to have our detective eyes and thinking caps as we observed the image. We shared our thoughts with a new friend from the other class.
After that, each of us chose a way to express our observations.
Some of us chose to be creative by drawing or by making models.
Some of us wrote about what we noticed.
Others chose to present their ideas through a video presentation of them
explaining their thoughts.
A couple of learners also tried to explain their ideas through movement like a role-play.
This activity allowed us to reflect on how we prefer to express our thinking.
