This week we have been doing lots of research. We have been doing research on the Chromebooks and in the computer lab. We have been making boxes and bullets to organize the information and getting taking notes from the videos we've been watching and the websites. We also have been looking in the table of contents in our books to see if we find any title to go with our main idea in our box. It has been lots of fun doing research. (Ryan)
The rest of the year we have a new science kit about energy. We are learning all different kinds of energy such as electricity and kinetic energy. And, we have centers.
In one center we connected a motor with wires and a battery. In another center we used a tone generator to convert electricity from a battery into sound energy. (Damien)
At school in math we have been comparing fractions, writing them and placing them on a number line, making an equivalence chain, looking at fraction models, and solving word problems that have fractions in them. Fractions are interesting because you can add them and do different things with them. Here are some of the pages in our workbook. (Layal and Raneen)
