This week in inquiry, we will dive into the geological timeline to begin our exploration of fossils! We will discover how fossils are made and what they can tell us about the past.
This week the Magical Minds begin a unit on fractions. We will explore few different models to better understand the concept of parts of whole. This week we begin by looking at the set model. We will use egg cartons to explore fractions of a dozen.
As the Magical Minds learn more about computer programming, we are investigating short stories. We are also looking at how graphic novelists and cartoonists tell stories with images.
Writing and Technology
The Magical Minds will inquire into how to tell a short story through images. They will write short stories, breaking down their scenes into a sequence of events, which can later be translated into a computer program.
