Bingo Board Challenge:
Since we have been thinking so much about setting with out work with fantasy, why not try a setting-based activity today?
|5. Build the setting for the story. Use Legos, PlayDough, looseparts, blocks, whatever materials you have access to.|
|10. Create a map of the setting in whatever medium you’d like: watercolors, colored pencils, chalk, pencil, markers, etc.
23. Sketch your favorite scene with as many details as you can. Write at least one paragraph telling why it is your favorite.
You don’t always need a long time to tell a great story. Today we are looking at a few Pixar animated shorts to study how much detail can be packed into just a few minutes. Watch these films and think about the communication that is happening in each one. How are the characters communicating with one another? How do we know? Think body language, facial expressions, sounds (how might you describe this sound?). How can this help to inform your fantasy writing?
When you are done watching all of the short films, complete slides 6-9 that are placed in your Writing folder called, Pixar Study. You can add your thinking right on those slides, as they are in your own folder. Or, copy and paste them into your E-Learning Slideshow.
Math: elapsed time
Watch the video below to learn about elapsed time. Elapsed time is the amount of time that passes from the beginning of an event to its end. You will find the duration of a time interval using a clock face and a timeline as a tool. Timelines are a way to visualize what is happening as the hour and minute hands move around the clock face. You will also understand elapsed time better when going from A.M. to P.M. or from P.M. to A.M.
On workbook page 118 you may need extra space to make a timeline to help you visualize the amount of time that has passed.

- Khan Academy–Time
- Time Hunter (choose the elapsed time option)
- Math Pacman- Elapsed Time (need flash)
social studies: All about me
- Watch the lesson about our exciting assignment today.
- Collect at least one:
- Bring these items to share at tomorrow’s Zoom.
On this day in 2007 United States treasure hunters discovered a shipwreck off the coast of Cornwall in the United Kingdom. The ship had a record haul of over $500 million worth of gold and silver. A shipwreck expert guessed that the wreck was that of the Merchant Royal that sank in 1642 off the Islands of Scilly. Treasure hunters travel far and wide to find what they are looking for. Nicholas Cage plays Ben Gates, a historian and treasure hunter in the movie National Treasure. It’s worth watching and so good, they made three!
