Week 8- Explorer Day
This week we logged in to www.sumdog.com for the first time in the computer lab. The kids had a great time practicing math facts and playing Junk Pile!
We also had Newton's Race! The students built ramps to use to race their cars.
Then they added washers to the cars to see if it made a difference in the speed of the cars.
Friday was Explorer Day. Students dressed up like explorers and brought items to trade.
All of the 5th grade classes went to the library and traded items. Everyone had a great time!
We also started making our flipbook to learn about the layers of the atmosphere. Check out this song to help you remember the layers!
STUDENTS: What was your favorite part of Explorer Day? What were you able to trade for? How does what we did compare to what the explorers actually did?
