This week we used heat scene pictures to learn about conduction, convection, and radiation. The kids rotated around to all 10 pictures and decided what kind of heat transfer was present.
Students: For this week give me an example of conduction, convection, and radiation. Don't forget we have a test Tuesday on this topic.
RAKem Up Randy came to visit our class this week. RAK stands for random acts of kindness. The kids have been doing many helpful things around the school this week. If you check the previous post you will see where Randy went to help out in the library. We will continue to do RAKs even after Randy returns home. This is similar to filling a bucket. Dr. Davis talks every morning about doing things to filling someones bucket. Are you a bucket filler or a bucket dipper?
We also started writing our new pen pals from Texas. The kids are very excited to have pen pals. Some of them wanted to know why we couldn't just text them, but we are working on writing. So all our communication will be through snail mail.
