We had a great week in second grade. We continued our learning about measurement by creating original drinks, one was named “Lemon Dazzle”. We used graduated cylinders and milliliters to create original drink recipes. Students then got to vote for their favorite drink. We had a tie for two different favorites. Your child might come home asking you to make the drink (sorry!)
We put our new knowledge about sound to the test in Design Lab. Students were challenged to create a musical instrument that they could sell at a store out of recycled materials and rubber bands. Two students here chose to create tissue box guitars.
We also played with a balance and motion/physics app called tinkerbox. This app helped us understand how angles, speed, and direction effect where a ball will end up.
