Our first full week

This last week was our first full week. Meaning, we had school every single day.
The week flew by!
Here are some highlights from the week.

Lollipop Lesson: On Monday we used the scientific method to answer the following question: How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Blow Pop? Our answers ranged from 200 to over 1,000! We discussed that the reason for this must be due to the fact that some people took quick licks, while some took longer. We decided that doing our experiment didn't find the precise answer because it's different for everyone.

Creativity: On Thursday, the students worked in groups to create a skit, poster, or game to teach the rest of the class the steps of the scientific method. Our first group presented on Friday. Brooklyn R, Aralyn, Weslan, Tony, and Paige created a game show with Starbursts at the end. They did a really great job with including everyone and challenging the rest of the class if they knew the steps. Way to go!! I am looking forward to seeing the rest of the presentations next week!

Parents: Feel free to ask your child if they can remember the steps. Or, even better, use the steps to answer a question together as a family.

Happy Birthday Annie! On Friday, we celebrated Annie's birthday. Annie's mom came in at the end of the day and brought Creamies for everyone. I think we all really enjoyed those. I know I did! Thank you Annie and Happy Birthday! And thank you for not popping your balloon. :)

Happy Labor Day on Monday! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!
