On Friday in Mrs. Clare's third grade class, students learned about impressionistic painting and how some famous painters such as Claude Monet, use a variety of colors to paint their "impressions" of what they see in nature. Students then created their own impressionistic paintings of rain by creating water droplets with their paintbrush out of a variety of colors. Students had a blast with this art activity and created some pretty awesome pieces of art work! Along with the art project, students wrote acrostic and haiku poems about rain to go with their painting.

This Term, as a third grade, each teacher has been rotating to each 3rd grade class to teach a specific science unit. In one of the units, students have learned about different types of forces of motion and how they are used regularly in everyday activites (pull, pull and gravity.) In the Force and Motion unitt, students have also learned how to identify different types of simple machines and and the forces of motion they use. At the end of the unit, to assess what students have learned, students were asked to design and create their own catapults.
