Second Grade AIM

Ancient China

This week in AIM

Today we continued to work on our Great Wall of China comic strip for our newspapers and then took a few minutes to practice quotation marks once again. I have challenged them to use quotation marks in their writing this week during ELA time (I have given their teachers a heads up to look for it). Then we started to learn about kites in ancient China by exploring the four forces of flight (gravity, thrust, lift and drag). This week our focus was on thrust so we experiment with our own thrust fliers!
