      Today we investigated calendars. We learned which months have 30 days, which months have 31 days and that February can have 28 or 29 days. We learned that plants have starch or stored food. Today we tested all the plant parts with iodine to find out how much starch each part has. We found that fruit, roots, and seeds all have starch. We learned that the smaller the seed the more starch it had. We decided that seeds probably need more starch for germination and the smaller the cotyledon, the more starch it would need. We compared our climate to the vegetation in Michigan. Today we had to write about what we learned about both Michigan’s vegetation and our climate.

     In the afternoon we played word study games and used our sand trays to write our words. We also added our spelling words to our Wiki pages. Some students still need to work on their Spelling Wiki Page tomorrow. We finished the Black Lagoon chapter book today. We worked on publishing our comic books and Black Lagoon books.
