Our holiday party was so much fun! The students decorated cookies, made ornaments for their trees and played fun "Minute to Win It" games! Thanks to all the parents who put the party together and decorated the classroom. It was a great experience!
Today, we played the game "Face the cookie" in math. The students tracked the number of seconds it took for their teammates to get the cookies into their mouths and created a graph using the Numbers app.
On Monday, we were fortunate enough to have Mrs. Williams teach the class about Hanukkah.
She showed us how to light the menorah and taught us some of the Hanukkah traditions. She then taught us how to play dreidel with chocolate coins.
At the end of the lesson, she treated us to homemade latkes (delicious!) with sour cream and applesauce!
Thank you so much, Mrs. Williams, for taking time out of your day to teach the class about Hanukkah!
Here are the optional football math questions for this weekend. GO BAYLOR!
1. What is the digital root of the final score?
2. Which quarterback threw for more yards? How many more? How do you know?
3. If touchdowns were worth 12 points and there were no extra points, what would the score have been?
Super bonus: What was the attendance at the game? Which digit is in the thousands place?
Today is science we watched a video clip from the TV show "Mythbusters" about walking on water. In the clip, the mythbusters mix cornstarch with water and are actually able to walk across the water! The cornstarch and water act as BOTH a solid and a liquid.
We had a lot of (messy!) fun trying to recreate this solid/liquid combination. After experimenting, the students reported on the properties that made this both a liquid and a solid.
