And here is the acids and bases song!
I won a drawing on facebook with EAIEducation and we got a class set of SmartPals. We started using them week with our test prep practice. The kids are able to insert the paper inside and write on it with a dry erase marker. Once we are finished I can take the pages back up to use again later.
We also completed a general characteristic/personality trait inventory to learn a little more about ourselves. Below you will see the bananas. Bananas enjoy planning, fact-finding, organizing, and following directions. They learn best when they have an orderly environment and predictable situations. I am a banana as well!
Below are the melons. They are naturals when it comes to debating points of view and finding solutions. They learn best when they have access to resources, can work independently and are respected for their intellectual ability.
If you would like to see more about this inventory check out the book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens by Sean Covey.
STUDENTS: What have you learned about acids and bases? How do you think it will help you in your life?
