I am exhausted today! We had way too much fun in class today and got so much done. Better drink some coffee before I go teach at the university tonight. We started a new science unit called "My Earth". This is a really fun earth science unit which covers earth materials, different kinds land, and rocks. We will also do some planting in this unit which is a lot of fun.
During our first lesson, we look at a globe and identify land and water on the globe. We talk about whether there is more land or water on the Earth. Then we do a workbook page about what we found.
For our second lesson, we explore different kinds of earth materials.
We explored sand, soil, rocks, and water. We looked at them with a magnifying glass, touched them, and smelled them. Then we constructed a chart about what we found.
Last we used our tray of Earth materials to record our findings in our science journals.
