Barometers, 0s and 1s, and the Ear
Happy Tuesday everyone! This Tuesday was one of the busiest yet! We had Exploration Place come and teach us about WEATHER. This is perfect, because we just started a weather unit in Mystery Science as well! Miss Erica helped us make homemade barometers to measure the atmospheric pressure. When the needle on a barometer drops, that means a storm is coming. If it is normal or raises, we will experience a sunny, nice day. You can keep you barometers in your bedrooms and they should work just as well as a real one works outside!
For Mystery Science, we learned about storm clouds and started to make a storm spotter's guide. We will actually fill out these guides on Thursday when we return to school, so make sure they are in a safe spot!
Math's lesson was all about 0s and 1s today. We learned some very specific rules about these numbers. For our 1s, we know that any number multiplied by 1 equals that number. You could write the equations in the fact family this way:
1 x n = n
n x 1 = n
n ÷ 1 = n
n ÷ n = 1
Our zeros facts are a little bit different. We know that any number times zero is zero. But when it comes to division, we learned that you can take 0 divided by any number, but you CANNOT take a number divided by zero. Do you remember why? What happens when you do that on a calculator?
In reading, we read about the ear with Mrs. Meridith (and at home you got to label some diagrams of the ears!). You sorted topic sentences and supporting details with Mrs. Day. And we did another round of spelling word practice with Miss Gurley.
We do NOT have school tomorrow because it is Remote Wednesday. Don't forget your check-ins at 9:00 and 1:00! You also have ALL of your work listed on Google Classroom and your checklists. Make sure you are finishing up your Health Fair projects as well! See you on Thursday.
