Posted below are some photos from the first few weeks of school. Photos include students doing the following: identifying the schoolwide learning expectations, using tools to observe, creating relief maps of Oregon, and acting goofy. It has been a fantastic beginning to the school year.
Today in science, we discussed how scientists use models to help them collect data and answer questions. We defined and compared two and three-dimensional models and discussed examples of each. One excellent example of a three-dimensional model we found was the tsunami research lab at Oregon State University.
I encourage all parents to watch the video with your child and have a discussion about it. This is a great example of how interesting and cool science can be.
I am planning on having a website available to students and parents all year. The website will include homework assignments, reminders, upcoming events, photos, and videos. I will do my best to update it regularly. This is my first time doing this, so we’ll see how it goes.
I’m learning how to post YouTube videos. My first attempt is this video, which was made during the video editing camp this summer. If you can watch it, that means it worked!
