Classroom Update

How have things been going in your classroom since we came back from winter break?

Prior to the break, we did a lot of hands on science lessons.  I attribute many of the ideas from my Mickelson training this summer.  We did pendulum swings, science and engineering activities, push and pull, catapults, building bridges, wind propelled balloons and magnets. The students were engaged and seemed to understand claims, evidence and reasoning.

Now we are investigating biomes, traits, and animals.  In addition, we are reviewing multiplication, narrative writing and explorers.

Are you doing anything exciting? Please feel free to share.
