KidBlog

Today we used KidBlog to write about our experience at Conner Prairie! I will post a link to our blog when we complete our entries next week.

Mystery Number Skype

Today we Skyped with a class from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. We chose the number 87 because some of us are 8 years old and some of us are 7 years old. We are proud to say that we guessed their number first, which was 33!

What do you WONDER about?

Last Friday we began exploring the things we WONDER about! Students will get to participate in an inquiry project of their choice during Daily 5.
