Wiley Weekly 9/25
Mrs. Wiley's Crew
Dear UMAC Parents
Next month we are scheduled to go on a new field trip! On the morning of Monday, October 26 our class will be joining Mrs. Barrett's class at the Prairieview Education Center to further our study of Native Americans. After a short hike, we will be visiting a Native American wigwam and participate in creating an authentic Native American artifact. Our UMAC teams will be leaving WC promptly at 9:10am and will return back to school for lunch by 12:30pm. This field trip will be entirely outside so we are crossing our fingers for a beautiful fall day!
I would like to invite three parent chaperones to join us on this field trip. If you are interested in coming along, please let me know as soon as possible by sending me an email. Since I can only have three chaperones, I will take the first three parents that respond.
Have a great weekend,

Science Investigation: Pendulums!
Our scientists had a blast this week exploring pendulums (swingers). Through a fun and hands-on approach students learned the following concepts:
-A variable is anything that you can change in an experiment that might affect the outcome.
-In a controlled experiment all variables are controlled except one.
-As the length of the pendulum increases, the number of cycles decreases.
