First Day CSI 4th Grade
It was great to have the 4th graders come to CSI today. I have spent weeks preparing and they were finally here. I thought I was ready, but I don't think you are ever completely ready 100% when you teach school! One of the favorite things they love is Nathan Levy's "Stories With Holes". See if you can figure it out: "Tim loves his work. He spends all day making faces, but nobody thinks he's very funny. Why?" The students have to ask yes or no questions to figure it out. If they use deductive thinking and ask good questions they can figure it out really fast!!
We had some special visits from Albert Einstein, Marie Curie, Benjamin Franklin and of course, our principal, Mr. Ogg. The kids liked wearing the mask of their favorite scientist or principal! Here are the first 6! Can you guess who they are??
They loved the experiment: What Makes the Water Rise? Steve Spangler science has the link to the experiment if you want to try it at home with your parent's help, of course!!
