We have been exploring the different theories about what happened to the Roanoke colony.
Student have been working together to explore those theories and we will be discussing which they believe might have happened. Every year my students are amazed that no one really knows what happened to the colonists. They always say, "OK, so what really happened?"
I found the Roanoke: Cold Case Investigation on TpT and that's what we have been using.
After watching the Kid President videos I posted last week, I had my students answer the important questions that could change the world.
What are you not okay with?
What do you have?
What can we do about it?
Each Wednesday our school has a classroom community meeting time. We discuss concerns of students and talk about what we can do to change things. So my plan is to discuss some of these issues and have the students develop a plan to figure out what we can do about what they are not okay with.
I created a Padlet for my science classes to use in order to keep all their notes digitally. We make interactive notebook pages but this is another option, in case they forget their notebook at school. Please take a minute to see what we've added so far.
