"Go West" Play
Fourth Graders have been using their energy cooperatively as they learned their lines and practiced for their "Go West" play, and their hard work is starting to pay off! We'll look forward to sharing our performance with you on Thursday, February 25 at 6:00.
Our big idea this trimester is Energy. Students analyzed the enduring understanding that energy cannot be created or destroyed but can be converted from one form to another and that energy can be used cooperatively. Students learned about how energy flows through circuits and how magnets are related to electricity. They investigated the transformation of energy through many different experiments, including a "Rolling Down Lab," and a water mill. Students explored what items are attracted to magnets, how to make an electromagnet, and created their own circuits. SCG&E also came in for a presentation on safety around electricity. Students also had fun learning the properties of light in experiments with refraction, reflection, and dimness/brightness.
