Science Observations


During the break, the children are to make daily observations of their mealworm.  They are to write at least 3 – 5 sentences describing only what they see.  They should describe what the mealworm is doing, the color changes, and if the mealworm has molted.  Molting is when it grows and sheds its skin.  They should also describe how many legs they see, they eyes, and the body.  I expect to see at least 5 different days of observations in their journals with different dates.  Lastly, the mealworms already have food, but they need water.  They get water from small pieces of fruit or vegetables.  Please help your child complete this task.

Durante el descanso, los niños deben hacer observaciones diarias de su mealworm “gusano”. Deben escribir al menos 3 – 5 oraciones que describen sólo lo que ven. Deberían describir lo que el gusano hace, los cambios en color, y si el gusano ha cambiado. Cuando estos gusanos crecen, se quitan su piel y tienen piel nueva. También deberían describir cuantas piernas ven, los ojos y el cuerpo. Espero ver a lo menos 5 días diferentes de observaciones en sus diarios con diferentes fechas.  Los gusanos ya tienen comido pero necesitan agua.  Este agua viene de pedasitos de fruita o verdura. Por favor ayude a su hijo a completar esta tarea.

ST Math

ST Math is a math program that has activites that are directly related to the math we do in class.  The class will go to the computer lab twice a week.  The students will log in and enter a password that they have memorized.  I will soon be making this available to your children at home.  When it is ready, all you will have to do is go the website and then type in an activation code. (BUD6y4L8W6XG75)  Make sure to click on home rather than school when it asks you.  That is all you have to do to have access to the program.  It will be ready soon.  I hope you all have a blast using this program.  Have fun and let me know how it goes.  Click on the penguin named Jiji to begin.

That's great! Did you see the solid ice cube turn into liquid? and then into gas? (water vapor) I'm glad you saw this. I hope you did it with the help of an adult. Remember, don't handle the stove alone. It is dangerous.
