Ms. Lochridge’s from First Grade Factory just shared this idea with me.I quickly created this sheet to use tomorrow. You create a ramp in your classroom and race several potatoes. Record the results and discuss. Thought you might want a copy.
We are preparing for a Unit on Soil.I’m trying to come up with some ideas . . .I want to create a soil layer jar.
I am also having each child bring in a Soil Sample from their back yard.Once everyone brings there sample to school I’m going to have the student’s use magnifying glasses to exam the soil. I created this sheet for the students to record their results.
I’m still deciding what else I want to do.
Does anyone else have any great ways they teach soil in their classroom?
This week to celebrate St. Patty's day a little early we read this book:
My students loved this book!!
Jamie O'Rourke is the laziest man in all of Ireland.But will his luck change when he finds a Leprechaun?The Leprechaun gives him a magic potato seed.His wife is not too impressed that he got a seed instead of the pot of gold . . . but will the seed actually be BETTER than a pot of gold?
After reading the book we created these adorable Potato People!!The students loved it!!Hope you can use this in your classroom this week!
