We made lighthouses with our 3F buddies and learned about Morse Code. We learned another reason why light is important: to communicate!
We have started rewriting all our notes from I Wonder Research. We can’t wait to see our grown ups at our publishing party on April 6th!
We are making voter registration cards to vote in our mock election. We read Grace for President, Otto for President, and Duck for President and talked about the pros and cons of each candidate. Tomorrow, we will vote for our favorite book character president.
We had so much fun turning the lights off and exploring with shadows in science today! We noticed how shadows can change shape, size, and direction!
We loved seeing the older students of Baker School perform in this year’s musical, Mulan. What a great treat on a Friday! Great job Ms. Sharif and 6-8th graders!
What fun we had exploring all the cool things light can do!
We are starting our I Wonder Research. We each picked a topic that was interesting to us and started writing things we know and things we wonder.
We have started our unit on light in science! Today we experimented with items and a flashlight to determine what items are transparent, translucent, or opaque. We recorded our findings in our science notebooks! ...
In math today, we used the fraction knowledge we’ve been working on the past few days to create a fraction kite! We used different colors to divide our kites into four EQUAL parts and then report our fractions!
We used our knowledge of doubles facts to help us with fractions today! With our fraction cookies, we divided our chocolate chips equally so it would be fair when we shared with a friend. Who knew fractions could be so delicious? Yum!
