We had a wonderful celebrating our accomplishments. It started with a Pizza Party from the Technology department for winning the typing challenge, and ended with a party planned by our amazing parents. Thank you so much!
We had an amazing day and it really didn’t seem that cold. Some of the students favorite things to do were when they were able to pet the animals after lunch. They also liked to look at the elk and couldn’t believe that the large antlers fall off in spring. We also found out that a skink was a lizard. There were a few tumbles when snowshoeing but with teamwork we were able to get up. We also found out that the needles of the White Pine are in groups of 5 and you can eat them.
We need extra time, so I have decided to move the test to Tuesday of next week. This will give us more time to review.
Our field trip is tomorrow and we will be the first group using snowshoes. The temperature is expected to be a low of 3 degrees and a high of 19. Please have your child where thick socks, warm gloves, snow pants, hat, scarf, coat and extra layers. I believe that we are outside for about an hour and then come in for classroom activities with lunch. Don’t forget to pack a sack lunch.

We are currently focusing on Force & Motion. We are looking closely at how things move. We started by talking about motion which is the movement from one place to another or physical movement like twirling, waving, etc. Things move in certain ways- according to path and direction. The students have been completing a variety of experiments measuring distance and speed, as well as, force (the push or pull). We have also looked closely at friction and gravity and are currently discussing simple machines.
Our test will be Friday, February 6th. Here is the website that contains the flashcards of key vocabulary terms that you can work on at home:NOTE CARDS.
