We finished building Horton’s platform today! We tested it by placing 1.3 pounds on it for one minute and it survived. The students were very excited that it succeeded.
1st & 2nd
We flexed our creativity muscles by completing a few pictures in our Scribble Journals. For this activity, students had to turn a scribble into a picture of something. They can complete the rest of the Scribble Journal on their own. Next, we started working on chess. We discussed the movement of kings, rooks, and talked briefly about pawns. Students practiced checkmating the king using only two rooks and a king.
