In science, we are studying plants. I am looking for a couple donations from families that would make this unit much more exciting for your child. Also, if anyone has any connections to florists, please contact me. email@example.com
- 2 large hanging baskets of flowers (Home Depot and Lowes usually have these cheap – $6-10). I’m not picky about the type of flowers in them.
- 5-7 large green (or red) peppers
I would really like to have these items by Thursday or Friday this week (April 21-22), if at all possible.
Thank you for your help!!!!
Today, we read various versions of the folktale Stone Soup. We compared and contrasted the stories using Venn Diagrams. Then, we created our own version of Stone Soup by bringing in snack items.
After all that reading, we moved into science exploration by learning about mixtures. We learned that when we are able to combine things and then return them to their original state (separating the materials), it is a mixture.
For math, we sorted and counted all the items in our Stone Soup, then we graphed them using the Chromebooks! Ask me to sign into my Google Classroom at home to show you my graph!
Please visit our Photos page to see us hard at work!
This week, we will be learning about mixtures and solutions. As part of your child’s homework, I ask that everyone bring a ziploc baggie full of a snack item that can be mixed and easily separated. This could include (but not limit you to):
- small candies (m&m’s, skittles)
All baggies are due no later than Wednesday, March 2 — We will completing the activity on that day.
