Week in Review
After such an unseasonably warm fall and early winter, we haven't had to worry about the cold weather too much. Now that we are finally feeling Old Man Winter, please make sure that your child is prepared to go outside everyday. As long as the temperature allows, we will go out as often as we can.
At the bare minimum, students need:
- Winter coat (A hoodie is not enough)
- Hood or winter hat
If your child would like to roll around in the snow and build snowmen, etc., then they need their full snow gear:
- Items listed above
- Snow boots
- Snow pants

Next up ion Reader's Workshop, each research team will be making a book about their weather event full of the facts and information that they learned!
Next week, they will be given the challenge to make a lightbulb light with just a battery, bulb and wire. It's harder than they think! From there we will constructing circuits and testing conductors and insulators.
