Wetlands Photo Slideshow

First Field Trip to the Wetlands on PhotoPeach

White Sticky Liquid To Soft Smooth Solid

Students had the opportunity to change the properties of glue in this experiment. They turned liquid glue into a solid white substance they could play with. It was an exciting experiment to see how making small changes to a substance can change it so dramatically. Here's a short little video...

Wetland Experience

Here is a sneek peek into our first wetland field trip. I will be adding a photo slide show later! Enjoy!

March Madness

Hi, this is Mia and A'lia. We are going to tell you about our reading incentive. The first week, our class got ringpops for returning our reading logs. The second week we got ROOTBEER FLOATS! The 3rd week we got sword pens and pirate tattoos. The fourth week, we get a free recess. If we bring our reading logs back at least 3 out of the 4 weeks, we get a pajama party and a drive in movie in the gym. We are going to watch Peter Pan!

A few weeks ago for Science, we did Body Projects. We had Mrs. Ellis trace our bodies on a giant piece of paper. Then we had to color and cut out different body part that were on small pieces of paper. After that,we cut out our traced bodies and glued the body parts onto the body. Then we got to take them home. It was a fun activity.

In our class we did a project. It was a body system poster with a body system on it. You could choose between the Digestive, Muscular, Central Nervous, Circulatory, Respiratory, or Skeletal System. What you do is draw your body system on a poster. Then write information about the system you chose to do. The body systems posters are hanging in the hall for students, parents, and teachers to see.

In class we made trading cards on people in the Middle West. Everyone had a different famous person. They were very good. Some of the people that fourth graders did were Grant Wood, Michael Jordan, Henry Ford, Abe Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, Crazy Horse, Ronald Reagan, and Harry Houdini.
