AP Physics: Presentations
Students started presenting their projects today. A full class period of student presentations can be deadly, but I wanted students to have an opportunity to share their work with their peers and couldn’t come up with a good alternative. Students ended up very engaged; over the last few weeks, they’ve heard bits and pieces about each other’s projects and seemed to enjoy seeing how everything came together. In one class in particular, students had some great questions after each presentation that showed they were really thinking about what they heard.
Earth Science: Cenozoic Minnesota
We started class by whiteboarding what students came up with for Minnesota’s Paleozoic era. There was some really nice discussion linking to earlier topics about why there are very few Precambrian fossils in Minnesota. Afterward, we continued the pattern with Minnesota’s Cenozoic rocks and landforms.
