Week two and three were spent building a level of comfort with the classroom, students, and teacher. I think if I'm going to be expecting these students to follow my plan for a project, they need to be comfortable with me as a person. This class is special. They are, for the most part, a very engaged and advanced class. I think this is going to work out well for my project.
The class is currently learning about weather. As a part of this weather unit, the students will have to make a presentation about one of the extreme weather conditions they learned about. These are Blizzard, Hurricane, Tornado, and Thunderstorm. They will be making these presentations as if they're a meteorologist. As a part of this presentation, they will need to make a background image that shows the ingredients and effects of the weather they chose. This is where my project comes in. I will be helping accent these backgrounds with creative ingredients, like colored string for hot and cold air, and more.
