Week 6


This week we went outside to learn about heat transfer! We found real world examples of conduction, convection, and radiation.

Check out the girls helping each other! Way to be proactive!

Native American projects

This week the students started presenting their Native American projects. They had to create a doll dressed in the correct attire and it had to be in a container with facts about the tribe. These are just 2 of our wonderful projects!

We started our Newton's Laws unit. We talked about speed and velocity. Check out this song.

Then we pulled out the toy cars and calculated their speed!

I'm super excited because next week we will be participating in the OREO project! We will be competing to see how many OREOs we can stack. So...

STUDENTS: I want you to make a prediction. How many OREOs do you think you'll be able to stack? Do you have a strategy planned?
