We had a great math lesson today, going over place value and how the value of the number in the digit changes depending upon its position. By moving left of the decimal, each move means to multiply by ten. Each move to the right is to divide by ten (or multiply by 1/10).
We were able to get through the entire lesson on Nearpod and then the students did an extra independent activity afterwards.
This was a very successful first time using Nearpod to do an entire lesson so I am definitely planning on using it much more often.
The Nearpod activity is available below until October 29th if you wish to try it.
In social studies, students completed the map of their particular refugee's journey. This was done on a printed map instead of the online kind.
In literacy, we did a Nearpod lesson involving close reading by using one of Aesop's fables, "The Goose and the Golden Egg." Students read the fable several times and underlined (or highlighted) what they felt were important bits of information in the text. Then, they used this information to decide what they felt the moral, or lesson of the fable is.
