In science we have been learning about different kind of waves like sound waves. Sound waves can have different sounds depending on how far they are apart or how long they are. We also watched a bill Nye the science guy to learn more about waves. This activity we went on PBS kids and were able to change the pitch of sounds. We got to make music and other weird sounds.

This week in Literacy our class created a presentation to help us review. One group did main idea and details. The main idea is the most important part of the story and details are little parts that add up to the main idea. There were more groups that did fact and opinion, authors purpose, cause and effect and drawing conclusion. All the groups made a quiz and taught us their topic.
