We began the day watching a Bill Nye the Science Guy video about Simple Machines.
We were then off to Art with Ms. Kerr.
After first recess and lunch, students had physical education with Mr. Slyk.
During math we learned about conducting surveys. We first reviewed the main part of a bar graph (title, labels, numbers). We then talked about the steps that we would take when conducting a survey:
1. Choose a question
2. Decide how to collect your data
3. Ask each person your question
4. Tally the results
5. Make a bar graph to show your information
Then we use the bar graph to explain what kind of information it is giving us.
Each student then came up with their question and then asked ten students in our classroom, making sure to tally their results. Then, they made a bar graph (including all the important parts: title, numbers, and labels) and answered questions about their tally and bar graph.
We then practiced our poems in groups.
After second recess and lunch, we continued on with our novel study. We read Chapter 2 as a class and then completed a chapter 2 quiz.
