Monday, September 12

Daily Objectives:

  1.  Demonstrate understanding and comprehension of the standards and concepts that will be taught in 7th grade
  2. Describe and explain: STEM  — what are the branches of STEM?
  3. What is the Engineering component of STEM ?  Why is this component always shown in a circular pattern?

 

Today in Class:

  1.  Classes completed the Pre-Assessment for 7th Grade Science… phew!   This took students about 3/4 of the class.
  2. Most of the classes then started to discuss… “What does STEM stand for?  What is one/two words that helps to describe engineering?   Words that students came up with were… prototype…. create… design… build… customize…model… solve problems… fix things, fix problems…find solutions…     Terrific descriptions!
  3. Next, I showed the class an Engineering Process   graphic organizer.  Most of the students started this;  we will complete these tomorrow in class. (I place notes that we take on the “Notes of the Unit” pages of this blog- in case you wanted to look ahead).

 

Homework:  No Homework today.
