Here is a short update with highlights from this week:
Math & Art : Angles, Circles and Mandalas
We are using these concepts to develop mandalas that we will use for our Art Cards next week.
English and Social Studies: Government and Elections
To do this, we are doing an activity where students take a stance on a given statement, share their reasons, listen to others' perspectives, and rethink their original position as they hear other people's ideas. It is really fun to see how engaged students are in these discussions. This activity really helps them realize that our position on a given issue is influenced by our values.
Personal Awareness and Positive Personal and Cultural Identity
