Dreamers’ and Design Thinkers’ Highlights! Nov. 30 – Dec. 4

Wildfire unit!

Kicked off our Wildfire Unit today with a spark! The Design Thinkers have a lot of questions about wildfires. And I really got them curious when I asked if wildfires are good or bad. Ask your Design Thinker what the “fire triangle” is tonight. It’s going to be a great theme!

Wrapping up Thanksgiving with a favorite Thanksgiving food graph!

“I have a turkey sandwich for lunch, Anna!” says Otis, “What do you have?”

Working on Art inspired by Van Gogh’s Starry Night!

Painting pine trees, making ornaments and playing Frosty’s snowballs, OH MY!

Building rectangular prisms and calculating how big they are in Math Workshop!

Christmas Tree Challenge!

Using 2 green triangles, a small piece of yellow paper, a hole punch, and yarn, can you make a Christmas tree that is 3 dimensional, has garland, AND a star on top? We’re still working on them!

Design Thinkers' Challenge!

You are a scientist and a land manager with the Forestry Service. You must launch a PSD into the woods with precision to start a prescribed fire. Can you build a PSD launcher with 12 popsicle sticks, 3 rubber bands and a bottle cap?

Let's have a great December!
