The way to a young scientist mind is through their stomach. We enjoyed learning about the rock cycle using starburst. We started by cutting our starburst into pieces to represent sediment. After, we put them together to make a sedimentary rock. Then, we applied heat and pressure to create a metamorphic rock.
(We were having so much fun Mrs.Olson forgot to take very many pictures.)
The last couple of weeks we did some digging into our family history. We learned we have links to many different countries and cultures. The students were invited to bring a dish that represented their culture. The different food we were able to try was amazing!
Every November the third graders spend weeks learning about manners! We practice and practice. To test what we learn, all of the third graders get together for a Thanksgiving Tea. This year was another great year of manners, friends, and good food!
