Week 29
Day 1
Objective: TLW review geometry terms and explore the art of Wassily Kadinsky. TLW use knowledge of line, line segment, acute angle, obtuse angle right angle, intersecting lines, parallel lines, perpendicular lines, and 2 dimensional shapes (triangle, quadrilateral...) to create a design which incorporates at least 5 of the above shapes using the paintings of Kandinsky as a guide.

Day 2
Objective: TLW investigate tangrams and learn that tangrams were used by the Chinese people to illustrate characters of stories that were told. TLW review the terms: slide, flip , turn (slide, rotation, translation). TLW use tangram shapes to create a design and write a story about the shape.

2. TLW trace a circle on the left side of a sheet of construction paper using a circle template. Choose tangram shapes to fill the circle in a symmetric pattern inside the circle. Next to the picture write the names of the shapes used. Color the shapes using some type of color pattern that will add to the symmetry of the design.

Cyber Quiz http://www.media-awareness.ca/english/special_initiatives/games/joecool_joefool/Start.html
Think you know about the Web? Here's your chance to prove it! Take a CyberTour with Josie and Joseph Cool, as they visit their twelve favorite Web sites, and decide whether or not they're making smart choices. It's easy to do. Every time one of the Jo's has to make a decision about a Web site, write down in your media journal:
What kind of Web site is this?
What decision does Jo have to make?
What should Jo be looking out for?
Does Jo make the right decision?
Why or why not?
How do your answers compare to the Jo's? Any surprises?
After you're done, compare your answers with those of your friends.
Once you've taken the CyberTour, see how much you've learned by completing the Jo Cool/Jo Fool CyberQuiz. There are twenty questions about the Net and how kids use it—are you up for the challenge?"will review safe seach engines: http://www.lite.iwarp.com/kidsearch.htm
