This week we finished up fractions and started measurement. We discussed metric length which included centimeters and meters. The benchmark for a centimeter is the width of your pinky. The benchmark which can be used a reference for a meter is the distance from the door knob to the floor.
Next week we will continue working on measurement. We will talk about the customary system which includes yards, inches, and feet. We will compare measurements and then begin to discuss area.

Field Trip Fun!
Whirly-Birds we made is Science to see Motion!
In Science we talked about motion and forces. Students were able to conduct investigations with different objects and decide whether or not the object would slide, roll, or spin. On Friday students made their own whirly bird which they flew outside. They were able to take these home today. In Science next week we will talk about magnetism.
The Health museum was a lot of fun. I am so sorry that volunteers were not able to come, but I understand why after going there this week. The exhibits are very small, and it can get very crowded. I hope you all have a nice weekend.
