We continued our unit on waves by having a great discussion about which wave had the greatest wavelength among three very different looking waves. I loved hearing all of their amazing guesses and explanations. Students then worked in a small group to create small "pops" and large "pops" with a rubber band under an aluminum pan filled with oatmeal. Students then worked with Dr. Dean to analyze the results.
Students got together with Mrs. Gambino's class and shared a piece of writing they're most proud of. They gave compliments, suggestions and illustrated their favorite part. We want to do it again soon!
Students had the opportunity to work with their first grade buddies to help them research hamsters. Students used their knowledge from their Northeast project to help their buddies find reliable sites and gather important information. It is so endearing to see how well our class works with younger students.
Students have been learning about symmetry in math. For this activity, one person would place a polygon on one side of the paper. Then, their partner would have to place the same shape on the opposite side to create symmetry. Students continued this until they had created a symmetrical design. There is also a photo of Caeden and Nat which has nothing to do with symmetry, but they spent their entire recess replicating Gillette stadium after the Patriots win, so I had to include it!
