Target 3: Flexible Learning Environments – FWSU will maximize flexible learning environments by redefining the school day, promoting learning experiences that extend beyond the school classroom, and fostering creativity, innovation, and differentiated learning opportunities for all.
Action Step – Develop opportunities for students to collaborate, innovate, create and conceptualize in all learning settings.
Students in Mrs. Carpenter’s 6th Grade Science classes are learning about living things and the environment. The classes used the Explain Everything app on their iPads to demonstrate the living and non-living factors in the environment.
The next portion of the unit of study will see students investigating how all the mentioned above factors interact. Students also spent time outside of the traditional classroom for an up-close experience of our beautiful surrounding environment. While out collecting photos, the students were fortunate to see a bald eagle, which was very exciting for all of them!
Class activities such as this directly correspond to the FWSU Action Plan targets and action steps for student learning in the 21st century.
