This week we learned to measure objects with connecting cubes. We also compared different lengths to each other.

We learned about common nouns and proper nouns this week.



Social Studies: I can explain the significance of several national symbols.

We created a Google Slides presentation about the Statue of Liberty, White House, Bald Eagle, Liberty Bell, and the American Flag. We learned how to copy an image from Google and paste it into our presentation.


Science:

*I can make observations that young plants’ traits are similar to their parents.

*I can explain how animals use their external parts to help them survive, grow, and meet their needs.
