This week we finished up our unit on teeth.  We read several more books about dental health, watched a video, did some research, and conducted an egg-speriment.  We also started working on our project for the auction as well!  Special thanks to Chris Timberlake for finding such an awesome art project and for coming in to make it with our class.  Enjoy the pictures below!

This week we started our unit on dental health!  We have been reading lots of books and articles about teeth, and we had a pediatric dentist come in to give us some great information about taking care of our teeth!

Here are some thoughts from the week:
"Your spit helps clean your teeth." -Liam
"I learned about plaque." -Sophia
"There are all different kinds of sugar." -Ana
"Mouth guards help to protect your teeth." -Matilda
"We learned the new 10's song" -Aiden B.
"I learned what it is like to be a tooth." -Adina (see pictures below)

Happy Chinese New Year!  This week, we learned all about the traditions and legends surrounding Chinese New Year.  We made paper lanterns, created our own dragon masks, read lots of books, and even had Panda Express come in to teach us how to use chopsticks!

Tuesday February 2 - Groundhog day!

Hi everyone!
Today as part of our nutrition unit, we learned more about vegetables and how important they are to our bodies for vitamins and other nutrients.  Here is the research poster we created:

Then we had a chance to explore vegetables through making and tasting - we made salsa.  The taste test verdict - YUM (and pretty healthy!)  See you tomorrow!
