Our essential question this week was How does weather affect us? We read about tornadoes, hurricanes and thunderstorms. To coincide with this topic we started research reports about weather. The students worked with a partner to gather information from books about different kinds of weather. Over the next few days, they will begin to write reports from the information that they found.
We began the unit on length in math. We started with an introduction to measurement by discussing what a standard unit of measurement is. We did a lot of practice this week measuring to the nearest inch. We will be measuring in other units like feet, yards and centimeters next week.
We started observing liquids in science by looking at two different liquids: water and glue and comparing and contrasting their properties. We continued to learn about landforms in social studies.
Congratulations to the Snowmen group who won lunch with the teacher this month. We will be having lunch on Tuesday of next week. The new groups for the month of February have been named. Good luck to all!
Have a great weekend!
