Decimal Representations and Number Lines

     Students worked in groups using base ten blocks to create decimal representations. The flat (100) block represented 1, the rod (10) represented 0.1, and the unit (1) represented 0.01.

     Students created a number line. Then other students used a letter to represent a point of the number line we had to solve for. The students who were not on the number line helped solved for the unknown points.

Rain Rain Go Away

     We read One Little Raindrop. After we read, discussed and charted the water cycle on the whiteboard. Then students drew and labeled their own in their science journal. 

     Then we read One Rainy Day and talked with our partners about things we see on a rainy day. Then students illustrated and labels things they see on rainy days.

     In our weather unit, we learned about the four components of weather: precipitation, wind speed, cloud cover, and temperature. We practiced observing and describing the four components. We also discussed items that protect us from precipitation and temperature, as well as tools to measure wind speed, temperature, and precipitation. After discussing and charting on the board, students went back to their seats, choose a type of weather, drew it and a form of protection and a measurement tool.
