We started off our week with a whole-school science assembly!
We then had ALO with Mrs. Belkind. We presented the students with the question, "How many feet are underneath the table?" The students had to work together to figure out how many feet there were under the table, and then explain how they got their answer. The students used paper and unifix cubes to help show their work. Once they solved that problem, we then asked them "How many fingers are at the table?" This was great practice working with 10. It was amazing to watch the students collaborate and solve the problems.
To investigate igloos, we watched this video on Inuits building an igloo:
1. building a winter setting in the block corner and then writing labels with post-it notes
2. exploring igloos by making structures out of sugar cubes and mini marshmallows
3. making symmetrical snowflakes and snowmen with loose parts, and then counting the parts
4. building a snowman with play-doh, and then explaining "how to" on Seesaw
5. Exploring ice in the sensory table, and sorting/patterning the objects frozen inside the ice
