Math Highlights of the Year by Daniel

In math this year a few highlights were double doubling, area, long division, and volume.  Another highlight was perimeter.  It was really fun.  Another was mystery numbers.  At first is was really hard, but now it is so easy.  Another thing was multiplication.  2 x 2 = 4 and 4 x 4 = 16.  Here is how it works.  1.  You need two numbers.  2.  The first number is how many times you add that number together.  The last highlight was adding.  It brought me back to my 2nd grade year.

PE Highlights of the Year by Ella

Wow!  I can’t believe that school is almost out.  All the times the class had PE together.  It’s been long in school together.  All we’ve done is fun in PE.  Everyone loves PE because it’s so fun.  Every time it was time to leave we would say yea!  A bunch of times we would do the parachute.  Our two favorite games were “Sink the Ship” and “Sharks and Lifeguards”.  PE was so fun, but the best part was you made friends.

Social Studies Highlights of the Year by Diamond

Social Studies has been really fun this year.  We had fun with Social Studies in the book.  We take turns reading paragraphs in the book.  We learned about changes in transportation, the Wright Brothers, and the airplane.  We also learned about changes in our homes like the vacuum cleaner.  Did you know that Edison and Latiner invented the first practical light bulb.  There used to be box TVs in a house!!  Josephine Cochran invented the first practical dishwasher.  We learned how to read a flow chart.  Chapter 4 was about communities long ago.  It was about Ancient Mesopotamia, Ancient Egypt, Ancient China, Ancient Greece,  Ancient Rome, and Mali.  We did chapter reviews.  Then Chapter 6 was about our country’s history.  There are many more pages to tell you about, but I do not want to write them all.

Science Highlights of the Year by Morgan

We first started by learning about forces and motion.  Then we did an activity making a pulley using it to pull up a social studies workbook.  Then we learned about variable speed and constant speed.  Then we learned about force, friction, and mass.  Gravity keeps things down so we learned about gravity.  We did an activity with tape, foam tubing cut in half, and a metal marble and learned where the ball went faster and slower.  We had learned about reflecting, refracting, and absorbing light.  Later we learned about thermal energy.  After that we learned about pitch.  Then we learned about closed and open circuits.  Last we learned how plants survive and reproduce, and did an activity with pinto seeds.
