Today we watched a movie and did the Finding Faults with Food lab with the Rulerz and the Bomb Squad. We watched 'Ring of Fire' with the Rulerz which was fuzzy and hard to see. It was interesting but not great. They did the lab in about 25 minutes which was a lot faster than I expected. Shawn started a second movie and they saw part of it. With the Bomb Squad, we watched a TBS Superstation show about the Caribbean island that was basically wiped out by a volcano. It was really long and the kids were pretty tired of it by the end. I thought it was interesting. Then they did the lab, also in about 25 minutes, although a few groups were more thorough and took about 30 minutes.
Tomorrow, with the Rebels and the SFOs, we are going to watch another volcano movie and see if we like that one better.
ActivBoard training tonight. That is going to be a fun tool to use in the classroom. It will require more planning to be ready to teach. And I think that will be a good thing for me.
