Mr. Burdett Challenge (a challenge you can give him)
 
So I hear there is this thing called Tik Tok.  Ms. Aryn shared a virtual hang out with the staff where she learned a Tik tok dance.  NO IDEA which one it was or what it is called.  So, for a fun Friday challenge, I would like to have a few suggestions as to which Tik Tok dance I should try and learn.  Please take it easy on me.
 
As always...
 
Please email Mr. Burdett your thoughts, if you make a video response please send him the link.  He will get back to each of you that reply.  You can also try the other challenges below.
 
 
PS... Ms VandreRee and I have a contest.  I have the Odd divisions and she has the Even divisions.  I think more people with an Odd divisions will respond.  So Far it is O  Burdett   O VanderRee

Today's challenge.  Ms. Levert and I want to make a giant heart in the field to show our support to all those that work in the hospital.  But we don't know how to move forward.  Can you please draw your best heart and send it our way.  If you want to help us even more, how long should it be? How wide should it be? How would we make is symmetrical?  What does Symmetrical even mean?

April 1st...
 
I was really looking forward to those Poisson d'Avrils today.  Instead I found a really gross 3 week old meat loaf that I could smell from 4 lockers down (added challenge, why does food go bad?).  Well at least I think it was meat loaf, one never really knows with found locker food.
 
So for today, ( sorry it is a bit of French work too) why do we call it April Fools day?  And why is it called Poisson D'Avril in French?
 
Only one Hint today Good luck

What a strange feeling to be at the school with no kiddos.  The gym is quiet, the halls don't smell like delicious breakfast foods, and the sounds of laughter and excitement of the coming day are no where to be heard.  I am going to keep Mr. Burdett's corner going over the coming days and feel free to visit each day for an update and challenge.  
 
Today's Challenge:
 
We keep hearing the word "unprecedented" what does unprecedented actually mean?
 
With your new understanding of "unprecedented" is the time we are in actually unprecedented?  What are your reasons for or against the often heard statement "we are living in unprecedented time."
