Magnets

Today the class learned about magnetic force. The students had fun experimenting with different objects in the room to see if they were attracted or not attracted to the magnet. We learned 2 new words: repel and attract. Then they used a paperclip as a racecar or a mouse to travel through a maze with their magnet. Enjoy the pictures! REMINDER: NO SCHOOL FRIDAY

Counting by 5’s and Pushes and Pulls

Today in math we practiced counting by 5’s with nickels. We used our 100 chart to also notice that our numbers either ended in 5 or 0. We watched these videos to help us understand this concept.

The class also continued to talk about pushes and pulls. We used a VENN diagram to identify if it was a push, a pull or both.

Force

Today in science we started our unit on physics. I first asked the students what is force? After discussing what they thought , the students had a seesaw assignment to do. They watched a short utube and then responded on the notepad about what a force is. If they did not finish this seesaw assignment I did tell the students that this would be homework!
