Students learned the difference between weather and climate today using M&Ms. We visited 60+ cities today including Tayler Town, Carterville, and Shae City. It was a fun way to learn!
We have been learning about the adaptations of animals and how they help them survive. Post a comment describing an animal adaptation and how it helps that animal survive.
To help students understand how adaptations help animals, we conducted a bird adaptation investigation. Students used various tools (pliers, tweezers, chopsticks, clothespins, and spoons) to gather food (cooked rice, cooked noodles, bird seed, peanuts). Students then had to write about what they learned. It was a fun day!
At the end of 3rd grade, Bonnie Plants gave all 3rd grade students a Mega Cabbage plant to take home and grow in their own garden.
Fabion did just that! He planted his cabbage, watered it, made it sure it had sun. Several months later he had a 6 POUND cabbage! His family picked it and enjoyed eating it over several meals. Great job Fabion!
In preparation for our Animal Unit in science, describe your favorite animal that lives in the wild (not a cat or dog). Post a comment explaining why it is your favorite animal, where it lives, what it eats, etc. Be sure to write in complete sentences, use proper punctuation, and spacing between words.
Students reviewed the organelles of plant and animal cells using various foods. After students successfully made their cells, they enjoyed eating them! The cells included bread, jelly, Hot Tamales, M&Ms, Fruit Roll Ups, and Sour Apple Twizzlers.
We have been learning about scientific investigations. One step of the process is to record data. This week we have organized data in appropriate tables, graphs, and diagrams.
Scientist – your task today is to explain when you should use each type of graph and where the x- and y-axis are located.
1. Line graph
2. Bar graph
3. Circle graph
Remember – don’t use the words left or sky to describe the axis.
Listen to the 4th grade class sing the 12 powerful words.
Students practiced the scientific method by investigating how many drops of water a penny would hold.
