This week we are starting a new unit in math about measurement. We will be measuring in inches and centimeters and using what we learned about fractions to learn down to 1/8 of an inch. We will also be learning the metric system and the U.S. Customary units. Next week we will be expanding into using measurement for capacity. This unit will give us a great opportunity to practice the thinking strategy monitoring for meaning.
In science we are continuing our study of plants. Unfortunately our AeroGarden didn't make it as I had waited a few years to plant the seeds so I think they didn't work well. I bought a new set of seeds over break so we will be planting those and starting new experiments with them!
