All About Gravity in Mrs. Bird's Class

Submitted by lena.bird on Fri, 02/23/2018 - 17:59

Our class has just finished learning all about gravity.  We learned about scientists and did some experiments, we did gravity art, we tried to build marshmallow towers that stood up agains gravity and we flew paper airplanes.  Everyone had fun!  Here is what some of our students had to say:

"I loved the paper airplane experiment.  We learned about why gravity does not pull an airplane down." (Cambrie)

"My favorite thing was when we did the gravity art page.  I learned that not everything always falls straight down." (Ryker)

Sixth Grade Field Trip

Submitted by lena.bird on Wed, 02/14/2018 - 15:35

The space center that I went to in Alpine District, was one of  the best places that I have ever been. I went on a field trip with the whole 6th grade. The ship that I got was the Galileo. The name of our mission was Cold Hearted. It was a lot of fun. The job that I got was to be the tactical, who is in charge of the weapons and the shields of the ship. But the tactical is not the only job; you can get the messenger, the captain, the engineer, the operations, ambassador, first officer, and the helm (the pilot).

Fifth and Sixth grade students participated in the science fair last week.  The students worked hard learning about the scientific method and applying it to an interesting topic.  The best part was seeing the students excited about what they learned!  Congratulations to our winners and good luck at the District Science Fair!

A big thanks and congratulations to all of the students who participated in our school Science Fair last week. We had a lot of student involvement and it was just fun to see the great experiments the students created. We want to thank Mrs. Gregory, Mrs. Brown and Mrs. James for organizing and running the event. The finalists will be moving on to the District competition.

I want to encourage all of our students to keep on reading! We have lots of fun prizes and incentives to help motivate our students during our reading carnival in May.
