We are continuing with our usual reading routine. Sixth grade students are continuing to read about science in Ancient China and 5th grade students will be starting a book on the muscular system.
We will be finishing our science unit this week. It has been fun learning about light, but we are ready to sink our teeth into other scientific matters. On this note as a final science project we will not only be turning our room into a camera, but we will also be making shoebox cameras. In order to do this I will be in need of shoeboxes (with ends that measure 4" by 5") , electrical tape, and aluminum foil.
This week resident artist Debbie Harris will be visiting West Homer Elementary. she will be working with us on an Olympic themed art piece. I can't wait to see how this student art turns out!
