We’re back from mid-winter break!

This week we are finishing up our balls and ramps unit in science.  Today the first graders used a board, blocks (milk cartons with washers taped to the bottom for weight) and a plastic cup to try to create a ramp that would move different balls.  Here is one creative way a first grade team tried to design their ramp.

Later this week the first graders will use all the toilet paper and paper towel rolls families have sent in to build their own ramp system!

Thursday is our 100th Day of School and Friday is Dr. Seuss’s birthday!  It’s a busy week in first grade!
