Today, combining a bit of visual art and math, we began work on double point vanishing perspective. This is initially a difficult concept for the students, but once they grasp it they start seeing the world a little differently. For this reason, it’s a great - if hard - lesson.
During our grade-level blocks, the fifth graders continued their work on their colony PowerPoints. The fourth graders did part two of the “Mock Rocks” experiment.
Here they were taking apart their mock rocks and examining the constituent “minerals”. We’ll be doing more with them tomorrow.
Homework: (1) Do spelling practice as usual. Also do the spelling word search. (2) Do the math review sheet on fractions and geometry.
Remember tomorrow is Walk-a-thon! We are almost at 100 percent participation.
