Solar System Research!!

We are ready to turn our classroom into the solar system! Before we do that, we need to do some research!!  The students are working in partners to learn about each of the planets in our solar system!  We are using books, articles, and the Internet to learn as much about each planet as we can!

Phases of the Moon!!

Everyone loves Oreos!! What a great way to learn the phases of the moon by nibbling on Oreos to carve out the phases of the moon with frosting!!:)

3rd Grade- Washington STEM Academy

Today we built straw rockets and launched them rocket launchers!! This was such a fun way to learn about measurement and distance!!  We measured our rockets in feet, yards, and meters and then recorded them on a classroom chart.  The students had fun learning about measurement and how to convert measurement!

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

We celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday today!  We read several Dr. Seuss stories, including one of my favorites...Horton Hatches the Egg! We created this bulletin board display and the the student made their own "Hatching Elephantbird Egg".  Each student then wrote down what they would name the elephantbird.  Some of their ideas were so cute! :)

Some of the students also dressed up to celebrate this fun day!
