|Dr. Lowenstein and the heart!|
The next week we started our day with decorating valentine boxes and we had library again. Annie's dad came in on Tuesday with a real heart and a set of lungs! He is a heart doctor who brought these things in to teach us about how our heart and lungs work and how to best take care of them. It was so exciting and interesting to learn. We even got to wear gloves to touch and feel. It was just pig heart and lungs though not human. As the day of Wednesday came, we had gym and a NECAP practice writing assessment along with fourth grade hour. Thursday brought a Unit 6 math test and something that only came once a year valentines day! Friday, we started our Abenaki AKA Indian tribe study. Mrs. Rollins has four different groups working on different information about the Abenaki and then we are going to take our knowledge of our study and present and teach it to the class. When we finish this work, we will be building an Abanaki village...cool huh? We also had Mr. Gorden Corbitt came and taught us about simple machines. This was a great two weeks and we all can't wait for vacation!
