What's Happening in 4th Grade!
November 12, 2013
Students are doing well learning different strategies for solving multiplication problems. We have also been practicing problem solving so students will know when to multiply. Problem solving can be challenging, particularly when the problem involves several steps. It is important for students to understand the story, so they know how to attack the problem. We have been and will continue to work on this throughout the year.

Students classified and sorted various seeds and identified the seed coat, food storage, and embryo. We learned that the embryo is the part that grows into the new plant. We soaked lima beans and noticed how easily the seed coat peeled away from the rest of the seed. We planted peas and beans in windowsill planters and are excited to watch roots and sprouts growing!
