We are finishing up our unit on the Solar System and the students have enjoyed it. They have been singing songs about the planets and pretending to be astronauts going to the moon. Thank you so much to Monica, Adiv’s mom, for donating a solar system model to the classroom. The model included small individual planets and a sun that the students can pick up and move. It allowed the students to put the planets in order and see the difference in sizes. The students have really enjoyed using the models of the planets.
In November, we will start studying the North American Biomes. We will compare and contrast 2 biomes each month. When we study each biome, we will focus on the plants, animals and people found in each biome. This month we will start with the temperate forest and mountain biomes as these are biomes that can be found in our area.
Later this month is Thanksgiving and I hope to be able to have a lunch feast before the holiday. I will let you know the details as the date gets closer.
