ROOM 15 2011 BLOG

WELCOME to 2011!

We have had a fantastic start to the year with our new topic CHALLENGES! Our classroom door has a new painting of Yertle the Turtle.  We loved reading the story of Yertle the Turtle by Dr Seuss.  What a great discussion we had about the challenges that the turtles in the story faced.  Have you read that story- we recommend you do!

Volcano Explosion in Room 15

In Room 15 we have been learning about Volcanoes for Inquiry Learning.  We all had a question and presented an oral report to the class explaining the answers we had researched for our group question.

We decided to make our own little volcano.
This is how we did it
1. We got a normal coke bottle and took the lid off
2. We put a white funnel into the bottle
3. We covered the bottle with tin foil to make it look like a mountain
4. We poured in a cup of baking soda and a cup of white vinegar

We watched the magic happen.........

Out came white bubbling lava- it slithered down the side of the bottle.

Potatoes all around

We have been planting potatoes.  Today we decorated our potatoe plant with cardboard cutouts of christmas decorations.  It looks awesome.  This afternoon we are going to dig the potatoes out and put them into a bucket.  They are entering a competition to see who has the most potatoes and the best decorated potatoe plant.  Also we might enter the ugliest or smallest potatoe!
