We began the second semester of the school year by reconnecting with one another. We played Two Lies and a Truth and shared some of what we did over the winter break. Then we began a new project. This projet spans grades 2-5 and will be a wonderful way to incorporate creative and critical thinking. It is called The Cardboard Arcade. The main goal of the project is for the students to make an arcade game entirely out of cardboard and recylcables. We will use the Engineering Design Process to take us through each step of the project.
I wanted to remind you that there is no GT on Fridays beginning this semester. The GT cuties will be with their homeroom classes on Fridays during FIT time. Please communicate with the homeroom teacher to find out what they will be doing. I will be teaching creative and critical thinking to homeroom classes on Fridays. We call it The Bobcat Brain Gym, and it will be a great way to infuse the brains of all Bridge Point students!
