We had our last bead math activity and we were limited on the numbers and colors of beads we could use. We did keep the last bracelet we made. We looked into what sedimentary rocks are. We had cupcakes that were in layers last week and we took a core sample. Today we looked at core samples made our of  paper and figured out how old they were. We learned that sedimentary rocks are formed by layers of sediment resting on each other and the pressure causes them to squeeze together. We read another chapter of Harriet Tubman and found out the reason her last name is Tubman is because she married a man named John Tubman, but he wasn’t nice to her either! We have been reading Patricia Polacco books and studying how a memoir is written. We read about her brother today and yesterday and that inspired some of us to write about our family!
