Do you think stores should be open on Thanksgiving?

Students in room 206 LOVE to debate!  First, we had an online discussion.
Here are some thoughts.

After seeing a media clip, an article and an infographic students had a debate. Students blended all resources to form their stance.

Students took notes and prepared the points and counter points to how they felt on the issue.

Putting our notes and Social Studies resources to use!

Students worked with the program Canva to create an informational page known as an Infographic to 
communicate one idea that they have learned.  Here are some examples of finished products!

Well done for a first effort!

Research on the Constitution

Students have started to understand how did the Constitution impact the government as we know it today. Students are using books, articles,  a Padlet of resources, and the textbook to answer questions.

First, we shared what we thought the Constitution was about. This information was collected in a Wordle.

Then, students got busy!

Mystery of the Meter

Students learn that they are going to do an investigation!
What are these dials? What do they mean?

Students discussed their observations.

Students make posters to explain their thinking.


Students then shared their posters and thinking with the class. Tomorrow, we will
continue the Mystery of the Meter!

Debating about the Revolutionary War

Students had to consider both sides of the debate. They had to have their points 
counter points organized and ready to support their view point. 

Here a student is responding as to why she does not believe 
that the American Revolutionary war was worth the price.

Students had to work together, share ideas, and communicate their
perspective with clarity and conviction.
