Would you rather be an elephant, snake, or barnacle?
Do you like mangoes, peaches, or apples better?
Would you rather play on the slide, swings, or monkey bars?
Do you like math, reading, or writing better?
Malcolm, the scientist of the week, asked us what would happen if you put flowers in different colored water? Would they keep growing? Would they grow better or worse? Would they change color? Our budding scientist even thought to set up a control in regular water AND split one stem in half to soak in blue and yellow. We're going to have to wait until Monday to see! Stay tuned!
Tessa, the reporter of the week, shared an interesting article about some snowmobilers who ran into trouble. Did you know you can get a $500 ticket for riding out of bounds. Noise ordinances and avalanche danger dictate where you can ride a snowmobile and ignoring these laws can be very expensive. Tessa said she would definitely read the signs next time she's out for a ride with her dad!
And for a special Friday treat we were surprised by a Secret Reader! Siena's mom, Diana, read us a great book, Last Stop on Market Street. This book is the winner of the Caldecott and Newbery book awards. That means it's a keeper. This book is so popular at the library right now it was all checked out. We got to read it online. Did you know you can use your library card number to read books online through the Pitkin County Library? If you don't have a library card, YouTube is a great source for books too. Or Tumble Books. Or Raz-Kids. We're nearing the end of the 100 Book Challenge so get creative!
