Play In the Dirt

Today we played a lot of catch-up in class. First, I showed the kids how to make a checklist of things they need to do so that they can feel the satisfaction of crossing things off of it.

We did some soil inspections today, and it smelled really bad. I made sure the kids scrubbed their hands before lunch, because it was pretty disgusting. We are going to try something new with the soil (hopefully with the assistance of a soil expert) before we put more worms into the terrariums.

The kids began work on their in-class, open-book Social Studies chapter 10 assessment. No homework, no "real" tests other than ISTEP, so no worries. I told the kids it's not even due until next Thursday, so take their time and give me their best work.
