On the Farm
Washing Dirty Pigs
Using left and right brush strokes, students improved their fine motor skills. They studied pigs in their natural muddy environments and then washed them clean by painting them with shaving cream.
Virtual Measurement Lesson
Virtual students investigated heavy and light measurements with balloons. Students learned that larger items are not always heavier. During this lesson, the larger balloon with air was lighter than the smaller balloon filled with water. Virtual students watched Mrs. Hoover use a balance scale to measure objects. Virtual students repeated the same experiment at home to explore heavy and light objects.
Can you guess how much we weigh?
