Wow the first month of school flew by! Here are some updates from Room #220.
In September, we had a visit from Hannah Schauer, a wildlife biologist from the DNR. She spoke about Black Bears in Michigan.
In ELA we are participating in the Global Read Aloud- A Long Walk to Water. One of our characters carries water to her family up to 16 hours per day in Southern Sudan. As a prereading activity we carried a 5 gallon bucket 1/2 full of water back and forth across the mud pit for only about 5 minutes. Wow- what a work out!
In Science we learned about Balance in the Ecosystem playing a game where only the strong survived. Did you?
Today to finish our section on Symbiotic Relationships, we played a Mutualism, Commensalism and Parasitism Challenge. Here are winners from each class.
