Thank you to everyone who came to the Open Classrooms this week. The students were very proud to share with you their learning from our unit of inquiry and math. They worked very hard on preparing their experiments and presenting them like a scientist. Your feedback and presence is much appreciated. Find some photos of the action below.

This week we looked at using place value to solve word problems and writing explanations for our mental math strategies.
We started our new writing unit this week, procedural writing, otherwise known as “How to” writing. Students were given directions on how to make a cow mobile decoration. They had to read the directions and figure out how to put together the mobile. Afterwards, we had a discussion about why the mobiles looked different despite everyone having the same directions. Some ideas were, we didn’t read the directions carefully, while some used the written directions more than the picture of the finished product.
This week we worked very hard to prepare for the final assessment for How the World Works. The final assessment had to parts. The first part was a Seesaw post which described the experiments students had chosen, the states of matter, the change in states of matter, and the conclusion. The second part was presenting their experiment at Open Classrooms on Thursday. Next week, we will wrap up this unit of inquiry with some reflection and one more visit to the high school science lab!
