The science teacher informed me that 6th grade had just studied density that morning, so I incorporated that in my lesson. We used density, mixture, and chemical reaction during the lesson. The students were told that after the lesson was over, they would be writing to Mr. Pleasant to persuade him to let the students cook more in math class. They had to come up with realistic reasons why cooking is important in class. They used the Chromebook to research valid arguments. During the lesson, the students were asking questions and I wrote their questions on the board. The students had to find the answers themselves using their Chromebook.
