Third grade Prognosticators

This Friday we talked about the weather and how the month of March comes in like a lamb or a lion.  We brainstormed about characteristics of lambs and lions and discussed how lamb or lion weather would present itself.  Then we chose a lamb or lion to decorate and place on our door to make our weather predictions for March.  We will see what happens.

Rock studies

For the past several weeks we have done lots of fun and educational activities while learning about rocks, fossils and resources.  We have created imprints using salt dough and shells, spiders and dinosaurs that we pressed into the dough to create an imprint.  We also "mined" a piece of lane extracting the natural resources found there.  We had a great time with our rock studies.
