We have been working very hard to create our own math board games. We tried them out this morning and we had so much fun!
Beach Day was a BLAST! We learned about water safety, made sandcastles, dug holes, and played a bunch of games with our friends! We even saved our food from being eaten by seagulls a few times! All in all it was a wonderful day. Thank you to all of the parents and volunteers that made this day so great.
Check out our Native American legend retell. We even illustrated the pages ourselves!
We have been learning about extreme weather and reading an I Survived book about Hurricane Katrina in the last few weeks. Today groups came up with a plan to build a levee that would hold water out for one minute. We had a blast engineering with our supplies and testing our models.
As a part of our science unit about weather and climate I gave the students a task of picking a vacation spot and trying to persuade me to go there on my next vacation. Price was not an issue (I wish that were actually true haha), just the climate and temperature of the destination. They needed to research the location, create charts and graphs to show precipitation, temperature highs and lows, and benefits of going to that location. They then needed to present the information to me. It went great!
This week we are learning about innovation. We are exploring what it means and who some famous innovators are! We have been having so much fun! We tried to build the tallest tower possible that would support a marshmallow, out of spaghetti noodles .
We explored places in Maine with Google Earth! We even looked out our houses!
