What happened today?

We started our “Bead Factory Math”. This is a unit that involves problem solving using multiplication, algebra and money skills. Students have beads to make bracelets that are a certain value. Today’s value was sixty cents. We started a strategy page to keep track of the different strategies students used. Our clay rocks from Tuesday finally dried so we could compare them to real rocks and make another prediction on whether this rock would break apart or not. We put them in the freezer and we will check on them tomorrow. We read another chapter of Harriet Tubman and we are very upset that she is a slave and we cannot believe how she was treated. She was only 6 years old when she was taken away from her parents to work. We continued to work on our memoirs.
