What Are We Up To In Room 115?
We have begun the task of working with elapsed time this week. This is always a tricky unit for students. I encourage you to work with your students at home, asking them about how many minutes things took or how much time in between activities they do, etc. The more they think about it in their real life, the better the understanding of time will be!
Sound and Light: We are learning properties of sound. The end goal will be to create our own musical instruments that demonstrate what we've learned about sound. Please have your student bring materials they may want to use in class this week!
We will transition out of this unit later this week and move into Rocks/Minerals next!
