FIRST OFF~ Happy Monday
Of course I’d always rather be with you guys but I am also very excited about the opportunity to meet with Dr. Ben Har Yeap. He has traveled all the way from Singapore to help us become better math teachers!
Before you begin the lesson let’s have some F-U-N
If you are able to print you may do so and share with the class later this week
Today I want you to begin to apply simple machines, mainly the inclined plane and wheel & axel, as you discover how weight, height, drag and wheel size can effect the force and motion of a car or truck down a ramp. You will complete each step of the activity and complete the graph after each test. You will print out the graph at the end of your experiment, put your name on it and turn it in. Be sure to go to printer after printing so that you can get your print out since many will look the same.
FORCES IN ACTION:
Learn about forces in action as you experiment how gradients, weights, motion and resistance affect the movement of various objects with this fun science activity. Try and get the truck down the ramp and to the end of the track by adding a range of weights. Record the results in a table as you watch how the different conditions affect the outcome of the experiments. What happens when you make a steep gradient or add a parachute to the back of the truck? Find out while enjoying this fun, interactive game for kids.
After you have completed this you will have time to use BBC Dance Mat Typing. Remember that as we progress toward our Practice PARCC test date (no worries it’s just a practice), we’ll need to have enhanced our typing skills so that we can increase our chances of success
As always I expect your absolute BEST behavior whenever there is a substitute in the classroom. She will be utilizing the Stop and Think Log as well as Behavior BINGO. I will also let her know that she can run a tally on the board for Class Dojo and I will add them in when I return on Wednesday.
IT’S ALL ABOUT YOUR ATTITUDE SO WORK HARD AND BE NICE!
~See you Wednesday,
