The students continued reading about animals today as we discovered how animals adapt to their environment. After learning about how some animals adapted to their environment, the students created a Google Drawing of a made up animal that had to adapt to the Rocky Mountain environment. The students did a great job with identifying how their living being adapted to their environment and using a new tool. I will post these Google Drawings after all students have had the opportunity to complete their work.
The students continued their work on data collection today through using Google Forms to collect data and display this data on a line plot. The students will analyze this data tomorrow in order to find the mean, median, and mode.
The students are finishing up the first build in our energy conversion unit for PLTW. We will use the bikes we are creating to show how energy is converted in later lessons in this unit.
Our assignment notebook code for tonight is for the students to identify how their made up animal adapted to the Rocky Mountain ecosystem. I hope you all have a great night and I look forward to another great day of learning.
