After our morning meeting and talent show practice we took some time in GENIUS HOUR to set up an experiment to see just what happens to copper when sprinkled with salt and put in vinegar. After all the statue of liberty was made out of copper and as luck would have it so were all pennies made before 1891 so we were able to find some materials to set up our experiment with.

Here is a little look at what we set up and then they why behind what we are finding out. This is pretty interesting stuff! The Statue of Liberty does not look shiny and new but copper does turn green and there is a reason why this happens! There is also a reason why copper was a good material to use in making this statue! We are learning so much about this American symbol! It is fascinating stuff!
In reading it was day two of our rotations. Mrs. Day helped us play a quick game of FISHBOWL to review our vocabulary and then we broke up in to our small groups to work on reading the story, reviewing MAIN IDEA, and taking care of our RAZ KIDS assignment.
In math it was day two of QUADRILATERALS and we worked more on classifying them! We also practiced dividing shapes into groups based on how many sets of parallel lines they had. If the shape was a PARALLELOGRAM then it had 2 sets of parallel lines, but if it was a TRAPEZOID it had only 1 set of parallel lines. If the comments, if you can give us an example of something in REAL LIFE that is an example of parallel lines then we will pay you an extra $2 at morning meeting tomorrow.
Have a great evening!
Mrs. J and Mrs. Day
