January 23-27


This week we continued our exploration of penguins. After learning about the difference between facts and opinions, we wrote interesting facts about penguins and then turned our papers into big penguins. In science, we did an experiment with blubber and ice. We found out the importance of blubber first hand by testing our hands in cold water, one hand in a layer of blubber and in just water. We also experimented with ice and textures to see how well our slippery ice penguins slide down a slope. In math, we worked on graphing and analyzing a penguin’s favorite snack, fish. Well we had colored goldfish. We were supposed to end our unit by making penguins out of oreo cookies, but the teacher forgot! (Teacher fail!). We will do it on Monday.
