This week we continued reading George’s Marvelous Medicine and found out what happened when Grandma took a sip!
We kept practicing “How to” writing. This week we wrote instructions for how to change your home reading books. After writing, we tested our directions to see if they were specific enough or if we missed any steps!
In our Unit of Inquiry we learned that forces are pushes or pulls that move an object. We explored basic pushes and pulls and different kinds of motion (run, walk, jump, roll, dance, etc.)
We did our first experiment making balloon rockets and practiced making a hypothesis – taking a guess about what will happen. We also played with moving a bucket with different weights inside. In these two activities we learned that a force can have different strengths.
2.1 pieced together the Central Idea, People apply their scientific understanding of force and motion in their everyday lives.
In math, we began thinking about the concept of measurement and practiced measuring objects in the classroom with nonstandard units of measurement.
We also began to think about equations using pictures instead of numbers.
Today we celebrated Kenza’s last day in 2.1. Have a wonderful holiday and see you on the 23rd. Don’t forget to sign up for a conference on the 26th or 27th, and here are the teams for Sports day on the 24th.
