Our week began with continued work on our essay research papers. We are just about completed with our revision. We also started our slide show presentations and got to learn how to use animations. Our math lesson was on finding the "Area" of a parallelogram. It was a little confusing trying to find the right angle to measure height.

On Wednesday we played Quititch in gym. We also started our new unit on seeds and plants. We soaked seeds and open them up to observe what is in a seed. You can actually see the first leaves. We then completed some scientific drawings. In math we learned how to find the area of a triangle. (b x h ) * one half. Another new formula to practice. A little tricky! Wednesday was also teacher appreciation day and we achieved our goal of filling the school with flowers!!

On Friday we had music. We also planted lettuce, radish, beans, and zucchini in our classroom greenhouse. Playing in the dirt was so much fun!
