Today we had cookies to share. This time we were asked to explain what strategies we used. We also had a sheet called “Missing Stars” where students had to fill in the missing stars. We are slowly moving into division. Mrs. Swaisgood was here and she helped us set up our crystal gardens. We made an alum solution, an epsom salt solution and a table salt solution. We want to see if what types of crystals will grow and which solution grows the fastest. We used Google Earth to visit places all around the world to see what the weather was like….a lot warmer than here for the most part! We finished Harriet Tubman today and we created a timeline of the most important events of her life. We started a new book called The Cay. This book takes place during WWII just like Number the Stars. We have already made many text-to-text connections.
We took our sugar crystals home today. We were told not to eat them!
