     We started measuring the capacity of different containers. We used a new measurement tool called a graduated cylinder. We also talked about the many tools we have to measure the capacity of items such as measuring cups, beakers, and cups. We learned that capacity is how much something can hold and when we are measuring liquids with the metric system we use liters. Standard measurement is a little tougher because we can use many things such as ounces, cups, quarts, pints and teaspoons just to name a few. We learned in science about farms and we made a salad  with the different plant parts we learned about. In social studies we talked about how humans have changed the environment in Michigan and how we have had to make adaptations to live here. In computer lab we blogged with each other about David Shannon and Mike Thaler.

In the afternoon we took our spelling test. We missed last Friday due to the pumpkin math! We also did shaving cream spelling. We read another David Shannon book and talked about how he uses family members as his inspiration.
