Month of November
Veterans Day Program
On Veteran's Day, Nance had a huge assembly to honor our veterans.
Second graders sang The National Anthem.
We recognized each veteran and what department they were in and how long they served.

On November 30th, we learned about what entrepreneur is. We learned that an entrepreneur is a person who uses resources to start a business. We also learned about a supply chain. Below, you can see the steps of the Supply Chain. There is also a video.
Supply Chain Steps:
- Get raw materials
- Make equipment
we also learned about risks and rewards.For example if you have a hot dog stand and it rains nobody wants to buy your hot dog.But if you check the forcast you will know if it's going to be hot or cold if it's hot you thats your reward, you checked the forcast so you knew.
See if you can figure out who fits in what category before the kids do. The categories are Technology, Entertainment, Food, and Sports.
Class Christmas Party

Fort Worth, TX
On November 16, we learned how Cabeza de Vaca survived many hardships. We have learned that the weather conditions were very harsh. Shelter, food, and water were not easy to find. Below, you can see Cabeza's treacherous route.
Science: Solar Houses
In science, we are conducting an experiment to see which material absorbs and stores the most heat. The three materials we are testing are brick, slate, and tile. When we tested brick, (using a heat lamp acting as the sun) we found the temperature change over a 15 minute period was 11 degrees. When we tested tile, the temperature change was only 4 degrees.
Math: Equivalent Fractions
Credit to Lexi McCarty and Redd SagersIn math, we are learning about equivalent fractions. We learned how to convert fractions so they have a common denominator. We learned lots of strategies for this topic. We have been doing lots of homework and class practice with Mrs. Lindsey's class!
Cabeza de Vaca Debate
On November 20th, we had a debate on which danger of Cabeza de Vaca's mission was the worst. The top 3 dangers were Gulf Coast mosquitoes, the Rio Grande, and Armed Strangers. We decided that the river crossing was the worst. Each leader came up and had 30 seconds to prove why their danger was the worst and disprove the other leader's danger.
