We started off the day with our Friday Reading Buddies...but this time we visited them at the Middle School! We made a thankful wreath to hang in our classroom. We traced and cut out our hands. Then we wrote what we were thankful for on them and made them into a collage.
We're thankful for our family and friends. We're thankful for our town and our freedom. We're thankful for our school and our food. We're thankful for the snow and the sun.
Julie Wille came for the last time and we did this really cool penny experiment. We learned about surface tension. We took pipettes and added drops of water to a dry penny. We wanted to see how many drops it would take until the water spilled over the edges. It was way more than we thought because the water's surface tension made the water form a bubble that hung over the edges before it spilled.
Here's the graph we made showing the drops of water. The dark blue bars are our predictions. The light blue bars are the actual results.
Have a wonderful and restful Thanksgiving break!
