What happened today?

We worked on logic today in math. This is a tough concept  for many. We used arrays and apples to create Saduko type puzzles for the kids. We had pretzels to share evenly today. We found that sometimes we have “leftovers” and cannot share all of the the pieces. We watched the DVD Planet Earth on Mountains and we learned about how the plates move and mountains can disappear and form. In this DVD the kids were able to see erosion and the rock cycle. We also did an experiment with a Dorito chip. We pretended the Dorito was a “boulder” and we put it through the process of erosion. We read about Harriet Tubman and we found our she was a spy, a nurse and a leader in the Civil War. We looked at different nonfiction books and found that they all seem to have a table of contents, an index and glossaries.
