Science & Social Studies
This week we began our first investigation of "Identifying Properties of Rocks". The students worked within their science groups to identify properties of the Mock Rocks. The pictures below show the students examining their Mock Rocks.
**Ask your student...What is an example of a property you could use to identify a rock? (texture, color, mass)
This week we learned about the events of September 11th and continued our learning about the U.S. Government. Our students wrote heartfelt letters to the Fort Atkinson Police Department thanking them for their commitment to our community. We also learned about the U.S. Constitution.
Our All About the Author pieces are officially finished! They are hung right outside of our classroom by our students' hooks. Your student also created an online writing portfolio that will showcase their writing pieces for the remainder of the year!
Stop by and learn a little bit more about the purposeful publishers in room 35!
