January 28, 2013

This past week was a lot of fun we made crystals to conclude our matter unit.

Then we were lucky enough to have a visit from the education outreach department from Red Butte Garden. They donated the supplies we needed to start a great plant unit. They even were willing to visit our class and help launch it. Here are a few pictures from that visit.

They are a bit out of order, but you will get the idea. It really was a lot of fun. Each week for the next few weeks we will be having at least one plant lesson and at the end of 40(ish) days from last Thursday we will be able to harvest seeds to use for next year's first graders.

For the next couple of weeks(when we aren't learning about plants) Ms. Woolsey will be teaching the students about the Sun and the Moon. I have been previewing her lessons and she has a lot she will be teaching them. It will be great.
