Weekly Preview: 1/27-2/1, 2013
It's January in Iowa, so that means crazy weather. It's only Tuesday, and we've had an ice storm, dense fog, and a high of 65 degrees. Tonight we're expecting 2-4 inches of snow. It feels a little crazy in school too, so it's only fitting. Here's the scoop for room 101 this week:
6th GOAL: This week, we're learning how to graph data on Google docs, and we're going to be analyzing the results of our Science Fair experiments. Experiments should have been done last week, but we have a few stragglers. Get those experiments done so we can start getting the data ready for our display boards!
7th GOAL: This week, we're up to our eyeballs in History Day research. Friday is the last day we have a computer lab reserved for this, so extra work will need to be done at home to find enough resources to make a good History Day project.
8th GOAL: This week, we're finishing the creation of 4-year plans for high school, and then we'll transition into researching for Images of Greatness. Topics should be chosen by the end of this week.
8th Critical Concepts: This week, we'll also be finishing 4-year plans, and then we'll move into an in-depth career exploration. Students will becoming an expert on a career, and they'll be sharing what they learn in a project.
