5th Grade 101
Mrs. Harris' Class Newsletter for 12/7/15
What We Did Last Week
In Science we learned all about what materials effect light energy. We discovered what happens to light when we reflect it and refract it. We learned about different lenses and what they cause light rays to do. we also discovered that the light we see is actually a combination of the color spectrum. We broke up white light to prove it and described why the color spectrum always follows the same order of colors (ROYGBIV). This week was full of OOOOHs and AAAWWWs during a 2 day lab.
BTW...3 of the 4 missing lenses did turn up. Thank you for those of you who were helpful during the investigation.
Laser Light Station
Students had to use mirrors and lasers to hit a target on the wall.
Light Box Station
Students used light boxes to reflect and refract light.
What We Are Doing This Week
In Science we will review for the Science DPM on Monday, take the DPM on Tuesday, finish or analyze the DPM on Wednesday, then move into investigating thermal energy.
My morning group will have their electric energy projects due on Friday. I have been listening to their design plans and am excited to see what they create! I bet they will be even better than last year's!
