Scientific Method

To begin the science fair projects the students first need to understand the scientific method. They also need to understand the difference between an experiment and a demonstration. Many of our students wanted to create a volcano that erupts or a model of the solar system, both of which are demonstrations. A science experiment takes them through the scientific method, just like a real scientist. All of our science fair projects will deal with plants and soil. We are going to teach these standards through our science fair projects. I know the students are very excited about their projects.

Morning Journal: What did you do over the weekend?

Morning Math: Word Form into Standard Form, Multiplication with arrays, repeated addition, and number of groups times number of things in each group.

Math: We began our study of customary capacity with the use of Super G. Please see tomorrows homework for an example of Super G. You can also have your child explain to you how to create Super G.

Imagine It: We continued reading our story "Earthquake". While we read the story we made connections and visualized some of the authors descriptions.

Science: Scientific Method! Science fair is on March 22nd. I hope to see you there.
