Homework: Thursday, August 20, 2015

Reading/Science: Finish reading pages 3-4 of EEI Lesson 1 and identify the most important words for summarizing. DO NOT highlight. Use a pencil to underline the words only.

Math: Quiz over lessons 1.1 to 1.3. How do you study for a quiz? Study your notes. Review the lessons in your big book. We’ve studied a lot of things so far. I need to see what you get or don’t get yet.

Stop Motion Experiment

Today we reviewed math properties by breaking up into teams and writing about them. We gave specific, kind, helpful feedback to student teams. Several are working on their 2nd or 3rd drafts of writing so far.

We are making 7 different stop motion animation films to show how these properties work. Today we tried a stop motion sequence to see how these films could look.

We shot 390 pictures over 13 minutes at a frame rate of 1 picture per 2 seconds. We rendered these using GoPro Studio and came up with the following results. Click stop motion line to see the results.

What do you think? What works well? Is there anything you would change with this test?
