108- Reviewing a Famous Scientist

We studied George Washington Carver in November when we studied Famous Scientists and Inventors.
We looked at Thomas Edison, George Washington Carver, and Benjamin Franklin.
Of course, to learn about these scientists, I had to make a Power Point! It's interactive, to give students the freedom of choice. (you can click on pictures and underlined words and they will take you to the page you want!) If you would like the Power Point as well, click {HERE}. Most of the information I used came from Wikipedia.

Now, It's been almost three months since we've talked about Carver, and my students were still able to tell me facts about him! We watched a BrainPop Jr. video to refresh our memories, and we played 'Questions for Tickets'. All of my students remembered the Tuskegee Institute as the place where Carver taught and did many experiments.

We incorporated science, reading, and writing by making a Peanut Book about George Washington Carver. First grade got the book from Mrs. Hughes.  

Here we are, working hard!

And here are some finished products!

We took our math test today and I think my students did well. I plan on grading the tests over the weekend. When we went over the Tennessee Reteaching section, I was impressed, so here's hoping the test will impress me too!

The last thing I'm going to post today actually occurred at the very beginning of the day. Ms. Harris brought in instruments for the kids to play! She's teaching our students about instruments from Africa, and she has a wide selection. In the video, they are playing a Freeze Game. The first one to move is out!

I love how Ms. Harris keeps the students engaged! Thanks for the fun, Ms. Harris!
