Brenna and Matthew's last Derby post HERELANGUAGE ARTS
LEARNING TARGET: I CAN summarize a text. 2) I CAN compare and contrast two texts.
It's a Derby themed day around SMA, people. Thus, we read two passages about the Kentucky Derby. The students then compared and contrasted the information given within both articles. Upon completion, they had a quiz upon each article and then selected one of the Derby winners from the past 140 years. From this Derby winner, they will research information about them and summarize it into a newspaper article front page.
HOMEWORK: research/ find information on Derby racehorse and bring it in Monday!
LEARNING TARGET: I CAN identify angles and name their parts. 2) I CAN use a protractor to measure and draw angles. MATH 2: 3) I CAN apply concepts of Geometry towards the planning and building of a city.
We started our day with a bellringer that was KY Derby themed.
We then FINALLY began our focus upon Geometry! Students learned about ANGLES and how to use a protractor. We learned how to label angles, the parts of angles, and how to classify angles based upon their measurements.
Math #2 is also beginning a supplemental unit in conjunction with this Geometry unit.
They will be taking our Geometry concepts in which we work upon in class and applying them towards the building of their city.
