When Monday came around we started work. One of the different things we have done so far is the slip and slide experiment and car racing; this is for our current unit on Forces. Did you know that Isaac Newton had 3 laws of motion? Those laws have a lot to do with our unit even though he lived about 500 years ago in England?
Our Math work has consisted games, individual and group work and we have been learning place value up to the millions, factors, prime numbers and rounding. Our work on multiplication is becoming harder than in third grade and we have learned some new strategies for adding and subtracting.
In our reading and writing we have been doing note taking and we are beginning to plan our writing, like this piece here. The specials have been fun especially art where we made portraits in a mixed up funny way.
Things are awesome so far in 4th grade; here are some of the words that we brainstormed about our experience so far.
