Week of March 16th
In reading we read nonfiction stories about different countries. While we read we focused on the facts and details in the stories. We also learned about what the table of contents does and how the glossary can help a reader.
In math this week we have continued with our unit on measurement. We reviewed nonstandard measurement and presented our measurement projects to the class. We also learned about time to the nearest hour and half hour. FInally, we used time stampers and wrote down times and what we did at each time.
In STEM, we got through the CREATE phase! We chose 3 scoops of earth material and created a mortar. We then had to use 30 rocks to create a 3 inch wall. We let our walls dry overnight. Finally, we tested out their strength using a demolition ball. We all found that we need to improve our process!
Finally, Andre was teacher for the day! He made a PowerPoint presentation about different countries. He incorporated music and food into his presentation as well! AWESOME job Andre!
