In Math class this week, scholars worked on a PBL (Problem Based Learning) scenario.  The Cannon Elementary PTA asked the first graders to help them gather information in preparation for the upcoming Fall Festival (October 13!). The PTA was interested in learning about what festival activities were most interesting to first grade students.  Mrs. Johnson, PTA president, sent a video to us outlining the request for data.
Scholars surveyed their peers, recorded data using tally marks, built graphs and communicated the data using an app called Educreations.
Consuelo's data - yellow team

Austin's data - green team
To conclude the PBL scenario, scholars worked in pairs to create a video to send to Mrs. Johnson communicating their findings. Each pair had an 'anchorperson' and a 'videographer'.

Mateo: Anchorperson & Angel: Videographer

 Jackie: Anchorperson & Kate: Videographer

We all had a super busy and super fun week in Math class AND mastered our 1st grade curriculum objectives of collecting data, graphing data and interpreting graphs. We also worked on the 21st century learning skills of collaborating, communicating and critical thinking!

THANK YOU so much for posting Mrs. Boynton. I love to see what our scholars are doing each week. I am so excited about the STEM program at Cannon. Our children are so lucky to be at Cannon!!!
