Today we talked pictorially about what happens during 1D vertical motion. Students with whiteboards worked together to first come up with ideas about this type of motion using any words or symbols they wanted. Then as a class they discussed (passing the pig) with how it all should look. We didn’t have enough time to finish the discussion, so we continued it on line using a google form.
Today in Physical Science was Jeopardy Review (thanks firstname.lastname@example.org – www.ericcurts.com for putting up a great google sheet template to modify and use!)
It was open note review, and the students worked together with whiteboards to come up with the right solution (in the form of a question)!
The competition was lively, and it came down to the wire (Final Jeopardy) for some classes (Go big or go home was a common theme)
The only thing that google sheets doesn’t (currently) do is make an outline form of the Q&A which MS Excel does – this makes it easy to share with the students post game, without having to print all the graphics.
