   We learned the difference between mass and weight today. We used a balance scale for the first time and we worked with different gram weights. We learned that to get the balance scale to balance is pretty tricky sometimes. We played a game that was a virtual green house today. We were able to pick different amounts of water, different amounts of sunlight and different types of soil. We tried many different combinations out and found that too much water is not good for plants. We also learned that sand is probably not the best soil. We learned about Michigan’s state symbols. Did you know that two of our state symbols were chosen by students? Pretty cool!

     Today is Mike Thaler’s birthday! We read his autobiography and we made him birthday cards. In the cards we asked him  questions about his writing. We played word study games and we had Mrs. Wallberg come into our room and read us a great book! This book was about being a bully and how it feels to be bullied! We all learned a lot! We are still publishing comic books! We also picked out our pumpkins for our math and science day with pumpkins!
