Today we continued with the unit on Matter: Properties and Change. Since we already took the test yesterday I had two different groups doing two different things.
The reteach group worked with me on reviewing the major points and concepts in order to be prepared to retake the test on Friday. The other group did an independent activity where they creatively made up 5-7 challenging questions based on the content that they have learned for this unit. Like the Moh's Scale of Hardness assignment last week, the idea is to use the best questions for review at a later date.
After doing the above-mentioned activities, we did a mini-lesson on nouns and then an activity on capitalization.
We finished out the class period having the students working on social studies.
Tomorrow's schedule will be similar to this one in which I will work with the reteach group while the others will do an enrichment activity. The re-test will be on Friday. Once they are finished and scored I will update their grades online.
Lastly, I have the syllabus for the next unit, Energy: Conservation and Transfer. It is available here.
