Today was SO MUCH FUN! We absolutely LOVED celebrating the end of our astronomy unit in reading by participating in Space Day activities. We knew it would be a busy and full day, and we needed to take care of a few things in the morning before the celebrations could really begin.
Finally, we started our special mission to the moon. The music room was divided into 2 parts: 1 for NASA and 1 for the astronauts on the Moon. It was important that EVERY single student read their instructions for their team carefully and follow all the steps so we could pass our mission! Some of the hardest parts were not being able to communicate with your teams over a video - the communication teams were kept VERY busy because they were one of the only teams who could talk to each other and pass messages back and forth. It became a little frustrating for some of you, but that just helped us realize that the real life workers at NASA have to be patient, too. There are definitely some challenges involved in sending astronauts up to space, and even though every team didn't pass their mission, we were able to plant the flag on the moon's surface, solve some tough math problems, build a crater lander prototype, study the phases of the moon using oreos, and write a history book about all the things that happened. We also need to thank our medical team for taking such good care of everyone so nobody got thirsty or sick during the mission!
During Science/Social Studies time, we
finished up our tournament of books. The 2022 champion of books is: The Book With No Pictures!!!
After specials you returned to the room for your math lesson. Today we drew polygons with specific attributes to solve problems.
Before the day was over, you helped your teachers put the music room back in order. Then we were able to get outside for a nice recess before it was time to go home.
Enjoy your weekend! See you guys on Monday!
