Happy Halloween! I hope all of you have a truly spooktacular Halloween!
We continued gaining knowledge on alternative energy. The students have learned about the pros and cons with wind power, solar power, biodiesel, and algae oil. Students are reading about alternative energy in order to determine an alternative energy source to the nonrenewable fossil fuels.
Students started their inquiry project for the Living Green Lead21 unit. The students got together in groups today to determine an environmental problem.The students will spend the next couple weeks researching the problem and identifying a solution for the environmental problem. I look forward to seeing the end results.
The students took part in an engineer problem today with a Halloween theme. The students were tasked with making an eerie haunted house vine out of pipe cleaners. The students had to first identify how they were going to create their vine. The students were then given time to create their vine and modify any problems they found. The purpose of this activity was for the students to persevere through a problem in order to create a design. We will be going through this similar process as we start our Project Lead the Way science curriculum in December.
Our word of the day today was inspired by Halloween. The assignment notebook code is for the students to tell you an eerie site they saw during Halloween. I hope you all have a great Halloween weekend and I look forward to a great day of learning on Monday.
I am a fourth grade teacher going on my seventh year of teaching. I have truly loved every year that I have taught and I look forward to sharing classroom activities we take part in during this upcoming school year!
