    Students teaching math!

    2016 - 11.27

    Mrs. Poole’s math class worked with a partner to solve a word problem.   Then, they presented their word problem to class with an explanation of how it was solved.  They loved being the teachers in the class!

    Fun Run Festivities

    2016 - 10.03

    We had an awesome kickoff pep rally and a wonderful week of dress-up days, collecting pledges, earning prizes, and of course our Fun Run laps!  Thank you for helping your child to collect pledges.  Remember, you can still collect pledges this upcoming week as well.  We appreciate all your support!  Here are some of our highlights from last week.








    The heat goes on!

    2016 - 10.03

    We are continuing our study of heat…



    Emerson is discovering how heat travels.  The students could feel the heat from their warm finger traveling to the cooler water, and the heat from the somewhat hot water traveled to their cooler finger.  Everyone thought it was so cool!  Ha!  (Remember heat travels to cooler objects/places.)



    We learned that heat is produced through friction with our Friction Centers.  We rubbed hands, rubbed sandpaper, and rubbed pennies on felt.  As we rubbed we recorded our hot results just like scientists do!


    We also learned that heat can be produced by mixing chemicals.  First, we had a lesson on safety in Science, and here we are taking precautions before our “Mixing Chemicals” experiment!

    Here we are mixing the chemicals… feel the heat!





    Robotic Olympic

    2016 - 10.03

    The day had finally arrived… ROBOTIC OLYMPICS!  All the third grade students prepared by programming their robots for two Olympic events.  We had Chariot Racing from the Ancient Olympics and Gymnastics for the Modern Olympics.  They had previously researched their country and made their own chariots.  Everyone was so excited and I am very proud of all their hard work.  Let the games begin!

    Science and Smores!

    2016 - 09.26

    We have started our new unit in Science… HEAT ENERGY.  To kick things off we conducted an experiment with pizza solar box ovens and smores.  Our hypothesis (question) was to find out which solar box oven would cook the smores the best (wood, plastic, or metal).  Most of the students predicted that the metal oven would.  We tested our ovens by placing them in the sun, and the pictures above show the students observing and recording the results.  (That’s what good scientists do!)  After several observations throughout the day, we analyzed our results and concluded that the metal oven cooked the smores the best.  With future experiments ahead, this finding will be proven again and again, and students will learn that metal is the best conductor of heat.  Conductors allow heat to easily travel through.  We ended our day with Smores for everyone!  Look for smore exciting heat energy lessons to come! 🙂
