The Weeks in Review
In the past few weeks we have been busy understanding the scientific process and examining of the world around us. We looked at the things we do every day, and we tried to place those items into our Scientific Method. We learned that we routinely use the scientific method everyday, whether or not we know it or not! Ask your learners about some of the great examples we came up with for our everyday uses of the scientific method!
We did a few inquiry studies that led us to think about our evidence that supports our thinking. We dropped paper onto targets and discussed WHY we chose the designs we did, and then on Friday we had a design challenge using only newspaper tubes! They had to build a table that could support a book! Ask your learners about our week of design!
In Social Studies, we have finished learning about the geography of Texas and all the things that makes our state so unique: weather, location, size, climate, landform, water, and more!
At Austin Elementary, we are driven to unlock the passion and cultivate the uniqueness inherent in every learner.
