Reasons for the Seasons

Sixth grade students have been learning about the reasons for the seasons.  They were able to take data readings at four different globes for both the Northern and Southern hemispheres.  Then, students analyzed their data to determine which globe represented which season.  Students also found that their data for the two hemispheres showed why the hemispheres have opposite seasons.  Students were able to prove through this lab why Earth's tilt and revolution around the Sun cause the seasons.

Creating Collisions

4th graders at Meadow Brook Elementary are building scientific reasoning skills and strategies through this year's SEED Standards. Right now are learning all about energy - how it transfers and what happens when objects collide. 4th Graders in Mrs. Anderson's class designed an experiment to test what happened when balls of different sizes and weights were rolled and hit a water bottle. They chose to use a beach ball, kickball, a little whiffle ball, golf ball, and a bouncy ball. Through their test, they were able to determine the effect of energy on objects when they collide.

Mrs. Wray's Class Is Becoming Expert Typers!

Mrs. Wray's class has been hard at work learning keyboarding. Every day they practice their keyboard ettiquette and typing with their fingers on home row.  They even practiced with a paper on top of their hands so they could practice typing without looking at the keys. They're doing so well, they can now type 16 words a minute!

Learning about Fire Safety in Second Grade!

Last week second graders were visited by Utah County Fire Department and learned about the importance of fire safety. The students got to see all the equipment that the firefighters keep in their trucks and learn about the big water hose!  Second graders then practiced being safe at school with a fire drill so that they all know what to do to be safe in a fire. The second graders had so much fun learning from the firefighters and say a big thank you for keeping us safe!

Beautiful Oops!

Mrs. Oman’s Class read Beautiful Oops! by Barney Saltzberg. We learned that when unexpected things happen, we can make them into something beautiful. We practiced this concept by turning blobs of paint into delightful creations.
