Dear Families,

What a fun day we had today at Dead Horse State Park!  We learned about water conservation, ground water, and the nine sources of water, We played games in two of the stations, and pumped water in one.

I’m enclosing some pictures of the day.  It was a beautiful outdoor setting to learn about water through Project Wet.  We are continuing our study of water in the classroom.  In this unit, “Sharing the Planet,” we are making a power point of our learning.

In math we are doing many story problems involving division and multiplication. The students are great at sharing their strategies, and we know there is often more than one way to figure things out.

We are looking forward to our hiking field trip to West Fork on Thursday, the 22nd, as we will continue to learn about water.

Oops, I’m having technical difficulties.  Here is a picture taken in class..  Ask your child to tell you about it.  IMG_5629
