Chicks

We have so many great things going on to catch you up on! We will start with the chicks. Yesterday, Ms. Pavlicek dropped off 8 eggs. When we came to school this morning, we found that 4 of them hatched! Another one hatched while we were in the cafeteria and ANOTHER one hatched while we were packing up to go home.  Everyone was so excited!

Our Trash, Our Choices

Mr. Musselman and Ms. Pavlicek from the Burlington Science Center came to visit our school today.  After collecting the trash from yesterday's lunch, they showed us how much waste we produce each and every day here at Memorial.  In an effort to reduce our waste, they showed us which items in the trash could actually be recycled.  Check out the Science Center's blog for more information!

Cause and Effect

In reading class for the last few weeks, we have been practicing finding the Cause and Effect.  One activity we did was read The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats and made our own Cause and Effect flip book. They came out great!

Mammal Research

Our class is learning how to write a report. Since we are learning about mammals in science, we have chosen to research beavers.  Writing a research report takes a lot of hard work! We are using books, pictures, videos, websites, and a taxidermied beaver from the science center to learn interesting facts. We are even learning to put those facts into our own words. When we finish our research, we will put it all together into a class book.  
We named him Timber.... Timmy for short.

Using books from the library to find information on beavers.
