"Oh! The Places We'll Go!"
WHAT'S NEW? (March 13th, 2015)
From the picture above, it looks like Spring is right around the corner. Finally!
Happy Pi Day! (tomorrow) Did you know it is the day of the century?? On 3/14/15 at 9:26:53 it will mark the first ten numbers of Pi. Fun, huh?
Did you hear we have a new student? Brenda Kim joined our classroom this week. All the students welcomed her in the nicest way and are so helpful with all her needs.
Next week, we are starting our Human Growth and Development Unit. The boys and girls will be learning the same material and will be separated during the lessons. On Friday, the Robert Crown Center for Health will be coming to Greenbriar for a presentation called, "Life Begins". The students will be all together for this "field trip".
Enjoy this beautiful weather!

In Science Lab, the students participated in an experiment to determine the surface area of their largest organ, the skin. They used a measuring tape and their math skills to estimate their skin's surface area and made a paper model to display their results. (see picture)
They also learned about genetics, genes, and traits by using a Punnett Square to show possible combinations of the cross between the genes of two organisms. They took turns presenting their findings.
They also wrote a short piece on "What is Worth More to You Than Gold?" Ask your child about his/her thoughts.
