Solar Eclipse Day

We had so much fun today – it was Solar Eclipse Day!

Students watched Flocabulary’s Eclipse video and then wrote a short poem/rap with a partner or partners using three words from Flocabulary’s Lyric Lab. They had to write at least two lines and include three words from the provided list.  After picking a “sick beat” to sing to, they practiced their poem to the music. Several brave masterminds performed for us. See a few of those below. I’m so proud of the teamwork and collaboration!
