Exploring our senses

We used all of our senses to explore apples and pumpkins last week. We made predictions of what each apple would taste like based on it’s appearance, then discussed our findings. We also learned some great new descriptive words. Our sense of taste sure was happy!

Math and science rock!

We had lots of fun learning all about units of measure last week. We used rulers, cubes, links and our scale to measure our apples, pumpkins and even ourselves! We also learned what a Venn diagram is. We used it to compare and contrast apples to pumpkins. We then applied what we learned to compare and make predictions about other classroom objects. Our favorite was comparing our friends! This was our first glimpse into the scientific method. We discussed hypothesis, experiment, procedure, results and conclusion.
