For my Chapter Challenge I chose the card #16, Tectastic. In the next four paragraphs, you will learn what Max, Sabrina, Allie, and Shira did for their last chapter challenge of the year.
This time around, my friend Allie, chose the card Chef’s Surprise. In the picture below, you will see that we created a food model of the way the earth really looks. The oreo represents the crust or the top layer of the earth. The blue icing represents the ocean, and the cracker represents the plate. We also made a volcano. First we took a cup and put icing on the rim to act like glue. Over the icing we put graham crackers to imitate the sides of the volcano. After we were finished we put the final touch by adding some icing on the graham crackers to act like lava. I think these two delicious models deserve five stars! Way to go Allie.
Next, I decided to chronicle Sabrina’s CC. Sabrina made a poster on “The Ring of Fire”. She taught us how volcanos work, where “The Ring of Fire” is on the map, and she even told us some interesting facts about the topic and showcased her excellent drawing of an erupting volcano. To add onto all of that, she was an amazing teacher. She didn’t read off her poster; she actually knew what she was talking about. Great job Sabrina! Your project was hot, hot, hot!
Next was Shira. For Shira’s Chapter challenge, she created a Power Point on plate tectonics. She reviewed the evidence for continental drift, and reinforced what seafloor spreading is. The interesting thing about Shira’s chapter challenge was, she made it easy and fun to learn instead of just reading out of a boring old textbook. Also, you can tell that she put a lot of hard work and effort into this project, I admire that. For example, she added a lot of pictures to her presentation. Thanks for the great review session Shira!
Last but not least was Max’s project. For Max’s Chapter Challenge he made a memory game. In my opinion, this is one of the hardest Chapter Challenges to accomplish. He gave each table a pile of questions and a pile of answers. We would pick up a question and then pick up an answer. If it was right, you would keep it and put it on your side. If it was wrong you would put them back in their places and try to remember where they are so next time you can get them. The first time Max tried his game, it didn’t go so well. On the second try, it went exactly as planned. Way to keep trying Max!
