PBL "How can I, as a biologist, recommend the best habitats to our local Zoo or Aquarium?" - After watching a video on the deserts, students used tablets (if needed) to conduct Internet research to explore 5 facts. Next, students found three animals to include on their desert page. We discussed taking notes during the video thus "working smarter" and avoiding further research. (advanced communication skills, creativity skills, advanced research skills).
Tuesday Class (Crazy Words) - (see pics below) I gave groups made up words. Each group had to define the word, illustrate the word, and use it in a sentence. Student groups presented their word: Pelp, Quin, Mox, Delfry. Ask your child about his/her word (Creativity Skills, Advanced Communication Skills).
Hidden Figures (Wednesday Group) - Since 2nd grade watched Hidden Figures today, I decided to have the students complete a follow-up activity.

Next, we discussed how all three women overcame adversity and we discussed how each us us has faced adversity.
Centers - Students played SET, Pivot, Keva Blocks, and Dizios
