It's about time!

    To learn telling time, we began by coloring clocks. Each section is a "container" for all the minutes in that hour. For now, our clocks have hour hands only. We practiced setting the hour hands to show times to the hour and half-hour . . .

   . . . and then we drew just the hour hand to show the time.

Exploring Symbols of America

     In the Creation Station we explored symbols of America using Google Earth and . . .  

    . . . virtual reality using these special goggles.

How Are Canyons Formed?

   We learned about erosion by exploring how canyons are formed.     In this guided experiment we dripped water on "land" made of         corn meal, salt, and water and observed what happened.

Hour of Code

                     We participated in the international Hour of Code. Mr.                       Charltray taught us about binary code and how to use                       Scratch Jr. to create whatever we wanted.

Readers' Theater

                      Everyone participated in a Readers' Theater play and got to perform for the
                      rest of the class.

What's the Buzz?

     Rosco's grandfather came to our classroom to teach us about beekeeping. Did you know that a honey bee makes only about one drop of honey in its lifetime?
