Today in Math the students continued to work with numbers to the millions place. Tomorrow we are going to be moving on to representing numbers. We will be practicing representing numbers in pictures, with base 10 blocks, in expanded form, in standard form, and using words.
In Science we began an experiment exploring the temperature of our classroom. We already know that warm air rises and cool air falls because of the changes in density as air heats up (becomes less dense) and cools down (becomes more dense). So, how does this impact the temperature indoors. Each group placed a thermometer around our classroom. Tomorrow we will be checking them. Some are near the ceiling, others near the door or windows, and one close to the floor. Can we see that warm air rises and cool air falls by studying our classroom temperature?
I was away this afternoon, however, the students worked in their Writer's Notebooks and then worked on an Art for Kids Hub tutorial on drawing beta fish. There is a reason why we were looking at beta fish today. Ask your students!
Thank you to our class photographer, Noor, for taking some pictures of our experiment today.
