### The Hobbit (in under 4 minutes)

Dylan Longmoore made this Common Craft style video for my students. I am going to use it to introduce the idea as another way for them to tell their Peter Pan story.

Spoiler Alert: If you haven't read the book, you may want to stop the video early. It encompasses the whole book, not just the first movie.

### Baking Soda and Vinegar Volcano

Fun activity in science lab, we did spend time talking about the differences between a chemical reaction and the pressure created through convection which actually causes the volcanic eruptions.

### Sequencing Some More, Re-Telling Peter Pan, Partnering Up, Digging Down

Finish sequencing Peter Pan (2003), then we will begin discussing how we can rewrite our own version of Peter Pan.

Social Studies:
We will partner up and begin to work on our posters. I can't wait to see what you compare and contrast on them!

Math:
We will continue to review, this time it will be variables and expressions. Three groups will be giving the lunch surveys tomorrow as well.

Science:
Chapter 9 Lesson 1 We will be learning about the rock cycle and rock formation.

### Sequencing Peter Pan (2003), Comparing Civilizations, Setting Up a Survey, and Reviewing Plate Tectonics

We are in for a busy week!

We will sequence Peter Pan (2003) today. Did we notice any differences between this and Peter and Wendy?

Social Studies:
We will be creating a poster comparing and contrasting two different civilizations. Get ready to work with a partner, today you will go back and find some interesting facts about the civilization of your choice.

Math:
Double duty day! We will be creating a survey for students to respond to. Finally we get to find out what the most popular meal is at school! We will also be reviewing some past learning this week. Today we will be looking at rounding and estimating.

Science:
We will be reviewing chapter 8 on Plate Tectonics.

### Survey Writing, Continental Shifting, Event Sequencing and Lab Visiting

We will sequence the events that took place in the movie Peter Pan (2003). I think we had a great discussion yesterday about the difference between the Peter Pan from the book Peter and Wendy and the Peter from this movie. I would love to have a discussion with the writer and director to see why they chose that path.

Math:
Today we will write our survey and instructions for administering the survey. It would be great if you remind me to ask teachers if we can come into their rooms to give the survey too ;)

Science:
I realize you need a bit more time to finish yesterday's assignment, but you better get with it. We will be reading lesson three today, then you will have the rest of the time to finish your work.

Science Lab:
I have no idea what you will be doing in the lab, but I did leave a reminder up above of what we did a month ago :)

### Finishing Peter Pan (2003), More Continental Drift and Lunch Surveys

We will finish watching Peter Pan (2003). Have we discovered anything different about this Peter Pan? We will start making a sequence of events for this version.

Science:
We will be reading today about continental drift. We saw a lot of great simulations yesterday about plate tectonics.

Math:
We will discuss the measurements of central tendency you worked on yesterday. Where do we need to go next? I am thinking we need to create some surveys to give to students. Which students should we survey? How many should we survey?

### Peter Pan (2003), The Lunch Project Day 4, Social Studies Review Day 2 and more Plate Tectonics

We will continue to watch Peter Pan (2003) There have been a lot of interesting changes in this movie when compared to the book.

Social Studies:
Continue our review of Asia.

Science:
We will be looking at continental drift and doing a quick map project.

Math:
Today we will discuss any patterns or trends. We will also do some measurements of central tendency on the datum we collected.

### Peter Pan, Number Crunching for the Lunch Project, Reviewing Asia, and Layers of the Earth

We will continue watching Peter Pan (2003). We noticed a lot of changes in the storyline at the beginning of the movie. Will we continue to see changes being made or will the story more closely follow the book?

Social Studies:
We will review Asia. This is your opportunity to show what you have learned.

Math:
Today we will look at the percentages of the lunch choices for each day. Will we find anything significant in the datum? Will we be able to start drawing some tentative conclusions about the lunch program as it stands now?

Science:
We are beginning as study on the Plate Tectonic Theory.
