Science and Buddies

We have completed out unit on Matter! The students tested the walls that they had built. The students engaged in the last step of the engineering design process of improvement as well. The students thoughtfully analyzed the data that they recorded and came up with several different ideas that could improve their designs.

Friday, our CHMS Big Buddies came over to celebrate the end of our nonfiction writing unit. The students all chose their favorite piece of writing to go back and edit, as well as illustrate. They then shared their hard work with their fifth grade buddies. As the fifth graders were leaving, many told their second graders how amazing their writing was. They were so proud of themselves!

This week we have been looking at the different properties of walls and earth materials. We examined several different types of walls and their purposes. We inspected the properties of sand, soil, and clay. The class created tile sandwiches with these materials to test how sticky they were and if they could withstand an earthquake. By combining all of this information, it gave the students an idea of what materials would make the best mortar and what design would make a strong wall that could protect a garden from animals trying to eat their vegetables. Tomorrow we will be testing the students designs and mortar with a demolition ball and seeing what improvements we can make to strengthen them.

Gingerbread Houses

Yesterday, to celebrate winter and the holidays, we read the book Gingerbread Baby by Jan Brett. Our class absolutely loves the work of Jan Brett! After the book, we got to decorate gingerbread houses. Thank you to all the families that brought in materials to make this happen. It was a wonderful activity to get our imaginations going!
