Shake, Shake, Shake!

This week we have been working with procedural text.  Students learned how butter was made long ago compared to today.  With a little hard work, we made some homemade butter in class.  Students ate the butter and compared it to store bought butter.  Ask your child which one was their favorite!

This week we put our aquatic habitats together.  Students were able to draw and label a diagram of the habitat.  We discussed the living and nonliving things in the habitat and their interdependence on one another.  We will continue to make observations and predictions throughout this unit!

Millions, Billions and Trillions!

Today in math, students worked on putting large numbers in perspective.  Our student teacher, Miss Lewars, read the book Millions, Trillions and Billions by David Adler.  She then showed students the population of various states by doing an activity with sugar.  Each grain of sugar represented one person.  Ask your child how many million people are in Pennsylvania!
