This week we will introduce systems and models. We will continue to refer to systems and models throughout the year so this is an important topic for us to understand!
Part One of this topic involves identifying what makes a good model. We will do this by learning how to tie a bowline knot through three different models. Students will decide which model was best at teaching them how to tie the knot.
Part Two will involve creating models. Students will be assigned parts of the game ‘Mouse Trap” and will model the subsystem. We will determine what is important to include in our models to make them friendly to viewers.
Note: If your student is absent their work can be found in the ‘While You Were Out’ folders in the classroom. Students are responsible for making up absent work. Assignments can also be found on the iLearn site!
