|Science Team Roles|
The rest of the day included more science songs and videos as we review lessons learned from K-5 for the science MCAS test. Students also took another section of the PARCC math test and decorated the simple machines they made in art class.
Today is students' last PARCC test of the year. After that we'll spend some time making science teams, talking about roles, and working together on an investigation of the spadefoot tadpoles using magnifiers and a scale. We'll watch a few short videos about the spadefoot toads as well and discuss the spadefoot's food chain, life cycle, body systems/adaptation, and endangerment.
Later students will have time for music class, reading independently or in small groups, clean-up, and an afternoon recess in the beautiful spring sunshine.
