In p.e. we started out hockey unit. We were learning to control the ball with a hockey stick. We practiced that by tapping the ball left to right while we were keeping it in a hula hoop. After that, we started going around the gym with the hockey stick and a ball. You had to tap the ball left to right while you’re moving around. If the ball hits someone or someone’s equipment or a wall, you get a strike. If you get three strikes you have to go to a hula hoop and tap the ball left to right inside it. After that, everybody lined up to get back to class.
In science, Ms. G, the science teacher came to visit from the Science Center. She brought all sorts of cool stuff like real animals, feathers and more. She brought two cool and cute animals. One of them was a bird. Her name was Baby. She is a white bird. She is a ring necked bird because it looks like there is a ring around her neck.
The other animal is a gecko. her name is Gaby. She is a leopard gecko because she has polka dots all over her back and tail. Once, she was trying to get food, but there was another gecko in the cage. They crashed into each other and Gaby lost her tail. But that was 9 or 8 years ago, so she is fine. But now she has a round tail instead of a triangle tail.
At the end, we made a t-chart that helped us find the similarities and differences between reptiles and birds.
In science we learned about Pangaea. Did you know that scientists think every continent was attached to each other because they found the same fossils and mountain ranges on different continents? Pangaea is the super continent. Did you know some continents got twisted in the Continental drift? I think it’s funny that Antarctica was connected to some of the hottest places on Earth. Did you know Australia was in the middle of the Earth?
