G6 Week 14 – S2

Last week in science!

Monday, April 26th

Today in science: Students followed a ‘To do’ list projected on the whiteboard to guide their actions during today’s science lesson, which was a continuation of last week’s Thursday & Friday lessons. The main goal of this lesson was to get through the entire list by the end of today’s lesson including all 5 distance trials of the new-and-improved skier and wheelchair skier on the 20 degree slope.

Homework: There is no science homework tonight.

Today in science: While the last teams completed the building and testing of their new-and-improved skiers–and wheelchair skiers–on the 20 degree slope, many students began creating two (horizontal) stacked bar graphs with a new online graphing tool called Create a Graph.

Homework: There is no science homework tonight.

Thursday, April 29th

Today in science: At the end of their first LEGO Forces & Motion module (Ski Slope) students were asked to reorganize their kits according to the piece inventory cards.

Homework: There is no science homework tonight.

Friday, April 30th

Today in science: As a sort of summary of their first LEGO Forces & Motion module (Ski Slope), students were asked to create a series of force diagrams on a handout given to them by Dr. Merritt. Before annotating the force diagrams, however, students were asked to confront and express their own ideas about gravity with the help of some videos (video 1, video 2, video 3).

Homework: There is no science homework during the 3-day weekend.
