We started investigating soil in science and when you have soil, you have worms. We observed worms and then discussed what happens to organic things when they die and fall to the ground. What happens to nonorganic things? In pairs or groups of three, we set up models using containers with all things the same: soil and organic and non-organic matter. One thing was different: one container had worms and the other didn't. We are going to observe the containers over the next few weeks and see how they change over time.
Rabbits: We began our Global Read Aloud book, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. Today we connected with two schools; one in Kentucky and the other in Indiana. We had a book talk with the other classrooms using ipads and the website TodaysMeet. We all got the chance to answer questions that were asked about the book. We're only in chapter 4, but it's getting exciting and great to be connected with something beyond our classroom. It was great to connect with other kids in different time zones!
