    When your child brings home his or her Look Paper, ask them to explain the map on the back.  We have been working on visual maps depicting forest and ocean scenes (grades 2 and 3) and a zoo (grade 1).   Students have to figure out what animal families are represented using symbols, keys and clues.  It is an engaging and unusual activity that requires them to use deductive reasoning.  We are having a blast!

    ngWe are using deductive logic and analysis to come up with one correct answer to mysteries. To do this, we have to be patient and wait until we have collected all of the clues to determine the correct answer.  We find a conclusion based on arrangement of information.   In the next lesson, students will use a visual map with a key to figure out a series of questions to understand the situation on the map.
