We are Scientists and Historians!

In science, students have been learning what it takes to be a scientist. We had a test over the characteristics of science and how to think like a scientists. Now, we are moving on to Earth Science. We have been discussing how the Earth's surface is built up and destroyed. Our volcano project is coming up, so I hope students have been preparing at home. The due dates are: Nov 6th for girls, and Nov. 7th for boys. We can't wait to see what they come up with!

In social Studies, we learned about what a historian was and how we are students of history, just like historians! We had a great first unit on economics where we learned all about how our economy works as well as what role we play in the economy. Students are working hard for their money for our classroom economy! On Friday, we successfully had our first classroom auction! Thank you to all who donated items to our class auction. Now were are learning all about the Civil War but will quickly be moving into Reconstruction and Life at the Turn of the Century. A project sheet will be coming home this week so make sure to check it out!
