This past week, we had a great time celebrating Metric Week in class! We have a few activities carrying over into this week to continue our learning of the Metric System. One of the most popular activities was the Metric Olympics. The students participated in various Olympic events such as the Cotton Ball Shot-put, Paper Plate Discus, Straw Javelin Throw, and more. Each student had to estimate the distance, weight, capacity, or area involved in their event and then record the actual information after completing the event. The goal was to get your actual recorded information as close to your estimate as possible.
Today was our field trip to the Salt Marsh at Oyster Landing. We had a wonderful time thanks to the beautiful weather and views that the marsh provides! We observed various producers and consumers that inhabit the marsh land, performed water quality tests, and did our best not to loose any tennis shoes to the pluff mud! I will post pictures of our adventures next week!
I have a created a classroom Donor’s Choose project to benefit our students! The link is below! We are fortunate enough to have the help of a generous local philanthropic group, The Bunnell Foundation, who is matching all monetary donations made to GCSD schools. Thank you for all of the donations that we have already received! https://www.donorschoose.org/we-teach/4895148
