Lessons have been assigned to them based on their diagnostic test results both in Math and Reading. Within each lesson are brain break games. The district is pushing a goal of 45 minutes per week on Online Lessons in ELA and 45 minutes per week in Math to close the gaps found in the diagnostic. Math and ELA are providing some of that time during the week, but not all.


What you NEED to know!!!!

WHAT ARE WE LEARNING: TinkerCAD, an easy-to-use 3D CAD design tool...LESSONS!

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT: Gives the user the ability to take something that's 3D and represent it in 2D. It is essential to all industries that use 3D modeling like architects, engineers and game designers!

HOW WILL MY TEACHER KNOW WHAT I LEARNED: You will complete an assignment in TinkerCAD and upload files you have completed through TEAMS!
