Today in math we moved on to lesson two in new unit measurement. Today we looked at measuring distance. We did a small experiment where students were broken up into two groups, created a ramp using construction paper, textbooks and a ruler. Students were tasked with rolling a marble down the ramp and timing how long it would take to reach each point marked on the meter stick. In bringing the math activity out of the textbook and into the real world students were able to visually see the pattern and able to apply the same strategies they used in the activity to the homework practice questions. Students were asked to complete questions 1-5 on page 199 of the textbook an page 78 and 79 of the workbook.
In Language today we continued to work on our spelling - due tomorrow - and practicing for our spelling test on Friday.
