Final Day of MSA...YEY!

This morning we took the final part of the Math MSA.  This also marked the end of MSA testing for our class.  YEY!

After testing, we cleaned and organized our desks.  We also put the room back in order by making clusters of desks and uncovering the items on our walls.

After that, the students got into groups of 2or 3 and using a checklist I provided, read their realistic fiction rough drafts to their group while the other members provided compliments and suggestions about their stories.  This is what it looked like:

Next, the students enjoyed lunch and recess.  Then they went to music.

After music, we had a short discussion about the use of Edmodo.  Then we turned our attention to science.

I asked the students what they thought would happen if we a cup of water measuring 99degrees Celsius and another measuring 25 degrees Celsius sitting on a table in a room that was 25 degrees Celsius.  We charted their ideas, after identifying that water freezes at 0 degrees Celsius and boils at 100 degrees Celsius.

Next, the students got into groups of 4 and began to plan how they could test the theories provided by our class.  They decided what materials they would need and what steps they would need to take.

Tomorrow the groups will follow their plans and decide which, if any, of our hypothesis were correct.
