We certainly had a busy day! First we heard from a local guest author, Amiee Beazley, who wrote Snowmastadon!, Snow Day Adventure. She shared her writing process with us and read her wonderful book. We learned a lot about becoming a writer and how being a writer can mean so many different things.
Then we had our last first grade visit from Mr. G. We worked with memory wire. We learned that memory wire returns to its original shape when heated. We heated the wire three ways: with the electricity from a battery, with boiling hot water, and with the heat from a hair dryer.
(sorry I can't make the videos show vertical?)
Last, we visited Miss Kelly next door and learned all about the frog life cycle...we came back as frogs too!
