Highlights of Cycle 14

Highlights of Cycle 14

Scientific investigations
In this cycle, the little scientists continued to work on their experiments, which they then presented keeping the scientific method in mind. During the presentation, the teacher, as well as the peers, critically analyzed the experiments, appreciated their efforts and gave suggestions to improvise. The cycle ended by having the students reflect on the feedback received and deciding as a group what their action would be now as they are nearing the Summative assessment. They contemplated whether they want to continue the same project or take up a new project altogether.
Persuasive writing
Students worked on their persuaisive letter writing skills during this cycle by writing a letter to the concerned authorities to re-think upon their decision of Navratri holidays in Gujarat. This made them hunt for evidence through primary and secondary research, to support their claim. The teacher then gave them feedback upon this and students continued to write a persuasive letter on a topic of their choice, for which teacher and peer feedback was given.
Integers
Getting into positives and negatives, our enthusiastic learners did various hands-on activities related to the addition of integers. After their conceptual understanding was clear, they solved sums based on the same.
Moving on, the subtraction of integers was catered to using different modes like ‘Integers chips’ and the ‘Number line’, before solving sums on the same. The cycle ended with solving word problems on Integers.
Looking forward to another eventful cycle ahead!
