It is hard to believe the first nine weeks of school have already come and gone. The monarch butterflies we raised have been making their way to Mexico and we will continue to study the life cycles of other animals. The students are also working on the skills needed for science inquiry- asking good questions, designing their own experiments and improving their observation skills. In math, we are currently learning about geometry, which has involved a lot of fun hands-on activities. As the weather changes, we will begin to talk about how scientists track changes in the weather from day to day.
