In Ms. Sanders’ math class, the students worked together to create the representations of the circumference of a circle, the diameter of a circle, and the area of a right triangle. By using demonstrations like this, the mathematics’ concepts connect with students in a fun way.
Today, the Second Graders listened to the story of Lyle, Lyle Crocodile, a croc living in the big city. We worked together on a SmartBoard activity that introduced us to three types of communities: urban, suburban, and rural. Students identified features or elements unique to each type of community. They, also, had fun pointing out the unique features in the urban community of St. Louis- the Arch, Busch Stadium, the river, the U.S. Bank building, and Forest Park. After completing our SmartBoard work, students chose one community and created a watercolor painting including important features/elements that make this community different from the other two. The results were just beautiful.
Can you guess which community is which? Test yourself below:
