FOURTH GRADE PEAK

March 6, 2014

THEME STUDY: KIDS CAN

WE FINISHED OUR PERSUASIVE NOMINATIONS SPEECHES! We also started our Humanitarian tri-fold Public Relations project. There are 12 parts to the project. We will attempt to finish 3 parts per week. I would like to finish the second week of April so we can start a Public Service Campaign to impact our school community.


Each year I talk to the students about finishing strong. It is easy at the end of the year to put ourselves in cruise control. The analogy I like to use is a race horse- the race horse sprints across the finish line. We are the race horses and we plan to FINISH STRONG!

POWER OF ONE PROJECTS

Power of one Projects are due April 10- I know that seems like a LONG way off but it creeps up on us quickly. This is an at home project.


Don't forget to take pictures - we will put photos on our tri-folds this year!

CENTERS:

Math: We are continuing to work through the Problemoids book! Problems are getting tougher but it builds perseverance.

Science: Students wrote a hypothesis to answer the following question: How can I make one circuit burn brighter than another circuit? We built circuits to answer this question, drew diagrams and wrote conclusions! Next up: Fruit and Vegetable Batteries - FUN!
