Egg Drop!

To begin inquiring into our new scientific process unit of inquiry, students created a contraption that would protect an egg during and after a 2 story drop. 

After they completed the drop, we inquired into how we could improve the process we went through in designing contraptions by thinking more like a scientist. In addition, we reflected upon what was successful and where improvements could be made to our designs. 

It was a fun, exciting and interesting task to kick off our unit!

Grade 1 Buddies!

The Daredevils and Blazing Marshmallows enjoyed their time together on Friday! The Blazing Marshmallows came up with a balanced schedule for us to follow...
Each Marshmallow chose two books to read to his or her buddy. From there, they were able to transition into choice time. The last activity (and the favorite) was playing outside!

Lots of Math Games!

Playing math games can really help you become more fluent with a skill. If you feel you need to work on a skill- please play some games to practice!

HERE is a link to my old blog. Within the blog there is a math game for virtually every math concept. One day I'll add all those games to this blog, but in the meantime, please visit the old one!

Be sure to check out this fraction game! See how accurate you can place the fractions on the line between 0 and 1!
