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?

Google Earth

              We are beginning to learn about the continents. At the Creation Station, we used Google Earth to explore them.

Making Tens

         We learned the strategy of making tens to help us add bigger numbers. For example, to add 9 + 5 . . . 

          . . . we slide one penny over to make 10. Now it's easy to see that 10 + 4 = 14.  With practice, we will learn to use the strategy mentally.
