Fizz, Boom, Science and History!
We walked inside and we all wanted to explore it! The museum looked amazing! We could all infer that the trip was going to be a blast! We first headed to the Native American hall and a bunch of ancient halls with things that people used back then. We also visited the hall of gems. There were pretty sparkly gems of all kinds in all shapes and all colors. After we explored we all headed to Natures Fury a big room with large screens to watch different videos and different things to try. Everyone got a chance to try it out. We got to go see all the different animals like turtles and snakes. We also read the cool facts they had near them. Then we went up floors to go to see another show called Tiny Giants. Then we went past the reptiles and water animals. We hurried to go to a cool little clip on different animals called Life at The Limits. Then we explored some more and then we went in the Hayden Planetarium to watch a show on space called Dark Universe. Then we all went to the bus and we drove back to school to be picked up from our parents. The museum was so much fun!!

In our classroom for the third grade Cultural Fair we are doing countries from the continent of Africa. We are making artifacts and researching all about country we chose with our partner. We have to research the country's, art, music, dance, food, theater, language, and other cool facts. Our class is working on these countries: Ethiopia, Morocco, Sudan, Ghana, Egypt, Madagascar, Algeria, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Nigeria, and South Africa. Some of use will make traditional food, make art, do dances, speak their language, or do some theater. Some information was really hard to find, but we found a way to get all the information that we needed to know. For the Cultural Fair we will set up a table and put our research and information on the table to show people what we did. The Cultural Fair will be held Wednesday, June 3 in the afternoon. We can't wait to share all our knowledge.

Meeting the World Through Mystery Skype
Have you ever wondered about Mystery Skype? In Mystery Skype you get to guess where they are in the world. You could be skyping with France, Africa, China, Asia, Europe, even Iceland! We have also skyped on twitter.
Our first mystery skype was with Nebraska, but since then we have skyped with South Carolina, Georgia, Washington, Alaska, and outside of the US like Ghana, Montreal, and Cyprus! There are many different jobs in Mystery Skype. The jobs are tweeter, manager, questioner, mapper, recorder, researcher and video taper. You can pick your jobs you want to do. The questioner asks the questions the mappers need to know. If they ask a question you don’t know that is what the researchers are for. After you guess each other’s state, you can talk and give facts about the state and school. We have learned so many facts!Mystery Skype is very fun but also challenging. Our latest mystery skype we did was with teachers in Kansas! It was their first time mystery skyping and we skyped with them so they could learn how to do mystery skype in their school!
