School Days...a Day in Science Class
The school year is quickly moving along this year...here is a peek at 4th grade science with the girls. Today the girls were learning about different forms of plant life, taking into account plants from today and from the past and discovering similarities and differences.
The girls love it when they have a lab opportunity in class because it means they get to investigate a bit more and get out of their seats and move around (Ivy can't stand staying still for too long!).
Kristen was the leader of their small group today (she loves it when she gets to be leader!)...she was so excited about getting to be the leader that she even showed up early for class so she could better prepare.
Claire was responsible for reading from the book to the group.
It's always so fun to learn with friends and work together to get whatever needs doing...done! Kristen reported what she discovered when looking through the microscope at a leaf that they girls found out on the playground...
She was amazed at all that she was able to see using the microscope that isn't visible with the naked eye.
*RING...RING...RING* It's the bell!! Time for class to be over! The girls can't wait for tomorrow so that they can continue their exploration of plant life.
