Native American Pottery

Posted on

We first drew a 3D pot using curved lines to make it pop out of the paper. Then the students used oil pastels to color each section. After coloring, they painted brown paint over the pot and waited for it to dry. When their pots were dry, the ultimate challenge came–to scratch into the pots Native American designs. Come check them out in the hallway when you can!

Hands-On Neouroscience and Thanksgiving Thankful Place Mats

Posted on

We loved learning about the brain through some hands-on science. The class got into groups and put together their very own brain as they learned about each part. After each part was completed on their play dough brain, they would test each other on what each one did. Ask your child where and what these parts of the brain are and do: Pre-Frontal Cortex, Cerebrum, Cerebellum, Amygdala, Hippocampus, and Brainstem. Hopefully having them be active learners in the lesson by creating the parts of the brain as the lesson went along helped them remember a little better 🙂

We also made some place mats by weaving paper in and out of each other, writing what we are thankful for, and drawing our hands/turkeys for life time memories. Not only that, but we took some real ads and had to use our math skills to buy a Thanksgiving dinner for $60. What a great time!

Yo-Yo’s & Igneous Rocks

Posted on

It was fun learning how to do tricks on our yo-yo’s and watch each other. Igneous rocks come from magma and lava, and so we tested out different rocks to see if we thought they were igneous. We built our very own volcanoes that we will finish this week!
