Natural Resources

Room 1 were very busy today creating a class mural about Natural Resources. We discovered that they are found in nature and are in the air, on the earth, and underground.  It is going to take a number of days to complete our mural as we talk about and illustrate our learning.

Measuring in Room 3

On Tuesday in Room 3 we continued to practice our measuring using different objects. For our technology we are designing a structure to put along the brick wall by the sensory garden. We decided that we needed to measure the wall so that we know how big to create our structure. First we measured it with string and then we measured the string with blocks and pens to see how long it is. Check out our photos!
