Today we heard from Otis the Reporter. He read an article about a fly fishing film tour coming to Aspen March 24th. You can go see it at the Wheeler Opera house. Summer is coming up and skiing season is coming to an end. Time to dust off your fly rods, start tying flies, head down to the river, and start catching some fish!
Then we heard from Siena the Scientist. We had learned about baking soda and vinegar before, but we got to see it in it's true form...in a VOLCANO. This kickstarted our spring study of rocks perfectly! Did you know that dried lava forms Igneous rock. This kind of rock is light and airy. It's rough on bare feet, which is why we make pumice stone out of it.
The contest ends April 8th, so a few more weeks to keep on collecting!
P.S. I think we're in first place for the first grade :)
And last but not least, we had a secret reader! It's been a while, but we were pleasantly surprised when Lilah's grandmother, Kathy, knocked on the door. We listened to the book Town Mouse and Country Mouse and discussed how Aspen sometimes feels like the town and other times feels like the country. We're lucky to live in both kinds of places at once.
