We took notes on what investigative questions are being asked in the video and what tools or scientific methods were used to answer the questions, much the way we did for the reading in the back of chapter one.
After discussing what was read on 1.7 and the earth’s tilt and how it creates seasons, we watched the video by Bill Nye and took notes for later discussion.
We completed and handed in the investigative group project for the assigned reading on p. 20-22. When completed, students began the research question assignment, a handout to be picked up by students when the project was complete. We will finish the handout on Monday as homework if it is not complete by then.
Students were to finish the map activity for 1.5 and turn in the map. Afterwards, students were to read 1.7 and collect five facts from the chapter section for class discussions on Monday.
