Our Frogs are Looking for New Creeks and Streams

Hi parents and guardians! Our tadpoles are turning into frogs. If you would like one for your environment, parents or guardians must come in either before school or after school until 4:00 p.m. on Friday to pick one up. You will need a container to take them home. (However, I have some extra water jugs if you need a container.) I can also give you a quick care tutorial if you are interested in raising it at your home. However, my recommendation is that they would be a great addition to creeks and streams near your house. Please let me know if you are coming.
Thank you so much!

3D Shapes and Bernoulli’s Principle

In math class we used windbags to create three dimensional shapes.  However, before we could use the windbags we had to decide on the best way to inflate them.  We estimated it would take between 200 and 300 large breaths of air to fill a big, therefore we needed an easier way.    After a quick demonstration of Bernoulli’s Principle we discovered a fun and quick way to fill our windbags!

Art with 2D Shapes (Creating Our Own)

We have learned about 2D shapes such as triangles, squares, rectangles, rhombuses, hexagons, octagons, pentagons, and many more.  We combined our 2D shapes to make pictures and create puzzles.  Here are just some of our creations:
