Our first science unit was about force and motion and simple machines. As part of the unit, we created slide shows about the Six Simple Machines. This was our first experience creating a slide show and they turned out great. Here are some below!
We are currently learning about the many different aspects of light. We have been reading nonfiction text about the characteristics of light. Taking what we are reading and putting it in our own words helps us understand these new concepts. It is also a good way to practice correct paragraph form.
We did this with the app Write About This. Here is an example by Claire and Kiersten.
The photos are dark, because we turned the lights off so we could concentrate on the light from our flashlights. Hopefully you can see how much fun we were having!
When we finished we looked to see if what we observed in our investigation supported our hypothesis. We had a great discussion about how light reflects off objects.
There are so many interesting categories of science. Mrs. Essenburg's favorite science topic is learning about rocks and minerals. What is your favorite science topic? We would love to hear about it!
