Science Lab

This week in Science Lab, Third graders created Land Formations using modeling clay. We had examples of:

Volcanoes, Mountains, Valleys, Hills, Sand dunes, Canyons, Plains, and Plateaus. We formed our hypothesis, listed our materials, made predictions about where bodies of water would form. We added water, and discussed our observations. Our bodies of water included: Rivers, Lakes, Ponds, and Oceans.

In math lab, students discussed radius, diameter, and the circumference of a circle. They also discussed fractions, decimals, and equivalent percentages as they folded the circle in halves, quarters, and eighths.

Students in fourth grade are busy skating into good math! They learned how to multiply a three-digit number by a one-digit number.

Box Tops & Campbell’s Labels

This is a reminder that CA collects Campbell’s labels and Box Tops through our CAA. The money raised from this project funds various school improvement projects.
