Science Update:

Prek - - We are learning about the 5 senses and soon we will start doing experiments. We have science TWO times this quarter so one of the days we are learning computer and technology skills on the laptops. We have learned about using a mouse, clicking & dragging!
K - - We are learning about the 5 senses and beginning to do science experiments. We will use our 5 senses to explore and record our observations. 
1/2 - - We have been studying life cycles. We watched mealworms turn into the pupa stage and we can't wait to see them when they emerge as beetles. We also put seeds into baggies and wrapped them in damp coffee filters. We are wondering if they will grow?! 
3 - - We studied crayfish for a couple weeks and even got to meet live ones! We learned about 8 basic body parts. We are now studying energy. We are starting with light energy. We will bet using lasers and exploring how light reflects based on what angle it is coming from. 
4/5 - - We did some really fun stations about 6 simple tools. Then we learned about Rube Goldberg. We came up with some awesome RG designs and some of us even used the iPads to create a digital image of our designs. We will move on to a unit called Maglevs next week.
