October Update

Solving Math Problems Working in small groups with Miss Ruetschle. Playing the Ferris Wheel game while practicing subtraction facts. Author Study We are learning about the author Cynthia Rylant. Here are some facts we learned... Cynthia Rylant grew up in West Virginia. She writes about her life. She has written more than sixty books! Liquids Unit We learned about the different textures of liquids. Liquids can have color, be bubbly, transparent, foamy, or translucent. STEM Project The challenge was to design the fastest way to melt ice. Students were given a list of materials to choose from. Ex. pie plates, plastic lids, plastic cups, foil, coffee filters, and a timer. It was fun to see if their structure worked or what they needed to do to make the ice melt faster!
