These are the numbers that Cindy, Lisa, Maria, Tommy, and Zack wore when they ran in a marathon.
3417, 5500, 5328, 5216, 5330
Each of the 5,500 runners in the marathon wore a different number. The runners got their numbers in the order that they signed in on the day of the race. So the first person to sign in got number 1 and the last person to sign in got number 5,500.
- Of the group of five, Cindy had the lowest number.
- The digit in the tens place on Tommy's shirt is one more than the digit in the tens place on Cindy's shirt.
- Maria was the last person to sign in for the race.
- Zack and Tommy were closest to each other in line.
- Lisa's number is lower than Tommy's.
Analogies - We skipped this today (higher level/critical thinking skills).
Creativity/Critical Thinking – Students imagined life as a worm. They listed 3 things they would like/dislike about being a worm. Then, we created a cartoon reflecting a day in the life as a worm. Unique and different ideas are encouraged during this activity. Students shared one like and one dislike with the class (creativity/logic thinking skills).
Game/Business PBL – We took a break from our Tinker (3D printing) designs, because the computer cart was locked. Therefore we revisited our game designs. Groups worked on trivia cards, game board designs, rules, etc. Ask your child about his/her game? (advanced research skills, critical thinking skills, creativity skills).
Math Stars - Students completed an assortment of math problems/brain teasers. This activity involved patterns, arithmetic, geometry, word problems, etc. Every child faced at least one challenge during today's math lesson. See your child's SOAR folder. (higher level thinking skills).
Game Centers: Chess, SET, Qwirkle, Pivot, 24, Rush Hour, and Keva J (problem solving, higher level thinking, logic reasoning).
