We have been learning about energy transfer in fourth grade. This week we investigated heat transfer by experimenting with the effects of speed, time and pressure on the movement of two objects. The students learned that the more speed, heat and pressure that is put into a system the more heat that is produced. We really are enjoying science this year by focusing on different phenomenon!
So far this year PE has been interesting, challenging and different but as always full of fun. The kids have been champs! We’ve had hot weather, smoke filled sky’s and lots of sunshine. The kids have been good sports and have embraced our new situation. It’s been fun to see how well kids adapt to change and how change can be good for all of us sometimes. We’ve played a variety of games, some new games and some old favorites with new twists. Star Wars frisbee, guardians of the galaxy, Spongebob tag, pickle ball and an outdoor circuit training Obstacle course to name a few.
Sixth grade had the opportunity to have Breathe-zy come and teach about healthy lungs. They learned about what helps to keep our lungs healthy, and what harms our lungs. They also got to see examples of what healthy and unhealthy lungs look like. In a couple of weeks, sixth graders will get to dissect real pig lungs.
