Pep rally for the Beaufort Twilight Run! Students had a blast showing their school spirit!
Cabbage patch fun!
In Math we’ve focused on Fractions and Measurement. Students learned to use fractions to represent numbers equal to, less than, and greater than one. They have been solving problems that involve comparing fractions by using visual fraction models and strategies based on noticing equal numerators or denominators. We have recently moved into Measurement and have been discussing the following essential questions: When would it be best to estimate the mass of an object and when would it be best to get an exact measure? What is the difference about the items you measure in grams and those you measure in kilograms? Does a large object always have a greater mass than a small object? How you might decide whether to measure capacity in milliliters or liters? Ask your child what they think?
In Science, we have started to learn about life! We looked at and explored different organism's life cycles. This lead us to our Cabbage Project. We have integrated math (measurement) into our study of cabbages. Students measure their cabbages in inches each week using a ruler. We look at the growth in both length and diameter. Students record this growth by creating bar graphs, drawings pictures, and writing notes about what they notice and have learned about their growing cabbages.
Students learn about the H.L. Hanley Submarine in Charleston and the part it played in the Civil War.
In Social Studies we have explored~World War II and how it affected the people of South Carolina, and changes in agriculture, industry, and home life following the war. Racial Discrimination in South Carolina and the U.S., and the fight for civil rights, led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. South Carolina's state and local branches of government and civic responsibility.
Our Essential question in Social Studies was "What causes war and what are the consequences?"
Valentine's day Fun!
