Wacky Snacks for Wacky Wednesday in First Grade
Wacky Snack Wednesday was a delicious treat for students in Mrs. Kate Pike’s 1st grade classroom. In March, students spent a week learning about Dr. Seuss and every day brought a different “theme” with it. So on this particular day, students dressed up in their wackiest outfits and used pretzels, Twizzlers, marshmallows, and Laffy Taffy candies to create their wackiest snack!! Students came up with all kinds of great delicacies, including magic wands, cars, and people. Other activities during the week included comparing and contrasting the movie and the book The Cat in the Hat, pajama day while reading Sleep Book, making a class book, and having students guess what “wocket is hiding in another’s pocket!” Sounds like a fun and tasty week in first grade!
Third Graders Find Volume of Objects Using Water
Mr. Claire Zurbuch, Cardinal’s “Science Guy” recently came to help Miss Barb Tropf’s 3rd grade science classes continue their study of the properties of matter. He came to help them find the volume of irregular shaped items. By using Archimedes’ method of finding the volume (amount of space matter takes up), students submerged objects into a container filled with water. They measured the displaced water with graduate cylinders to find the volume of various objects: a softball, pop can, brick, rock and a piece of wood. They found that mass does not determine volume, but size does. Mr. Z. finished up the experiment by measuring a rectangular prism. The 3rd graders used their multiplication skills learned in Mrs. Christine Hiller’s Math class to find the volume of the prism. Then they used the same displacement method to prove their math was correct. Thanks Mr. Z!
