January News
Friday, January 29, 2016

We had a lot of fun this January. We finished up our changes in motion unit in science. We learned about all sorts of contact and noncontact forces and their effects on objects. We also have continued reading and writing up a storm during our literacy block. In math we have moved on to adding and subtracting 3-digit numbers. We are almost 100 days smarter and it is showing.

Look About Lodge Winter
Friday, January 15, 2016

We went for our winter walk this week to Look About Lodge. We had lots of snow and we were able to see animal tracks in the snow. We learned that some animals hibernate, while others hang around for the winter. We saw chick-a-dees eating from the bird feeders. The best part was making snow angels at the end!

Today was the culmination of our unit on forces and motion. The students worked in teams to design, build, and test car tracks.They used everything they have learned to create the tracks. Their challenge was to use non-contact forces to get the car to move from one end of the track to the other.
