# Observations and Inferences

This week in science we learned about observations and inferences.  Observations are when you use your five senses to gather information.  Your five senses are smell, sight, taste, hear, and touch.  Inferences is when you come up with an idea using evidence.  We did a chip project using our senses.  We were given a chip and we had to remember what our chip looked like with our observations.  The next day we tried to find our chip from all the other kids chips.  We did chicken in a cup next.  It was where we used string, a paper clip, and a cup to try a make a chicken noise.  It worked!  It was so much fun.  We did one bad thing.  We did a gummy bear project.  We put gummy bears in salt water, vinegar, and baking soda water to see what would happen.  What was so wrong is we got to taste them.  The salt water gummy bear tasted like I was drowning in the ocean.  By Farrah

This week in science we learned about observations and inferences.  An observation is information gathered using your 5 senses.  Inferences are making a guess using evidence.  Once science project we did was a chip project.  The first thing we did is, our teacher gave us a Doritos.  Then, we had to describe our chip.  Next we had to give our teacher our chip.  Then the next day, we had to take our observations to see if we could find our chip.  The the other science we did was the gummy bear project.  First thing our teacher gave us our gummy bears.  We put the gummy bears in cups with salt water, vinegar, and baking soda water.  The next day we took them out to see how they changed.  By Emily R

# The First Week of Fourth Grade!

This week we had so much fun.  We even made things and did some projects and activities.  We had some sticky notes inside of our desk buckets.  In the morning we answered a question on a little white board by writing on the sticky notes.  The questions were like what is the kindest thing you have ever done for someone else?  We also did a project with cups, 4 pieces of string, and a rubber band.  The rules were we couldn’t touch the cup.  We had to only use the rubber band and string to make a pyramid.  We did another project too, the marshmallow challenge.  We did a coloring page with mindful saying to help decorate out classroom, our reading Star test, and so many more fun things.  We have been reading the third book of Harry Potter.  We are still doing Prodigy for math.  Hopefully we are still doing Skypes and coding games.  By Sara

In 4th grade we did an alien scavenger hunt. The aliens took our principal and we had to find him.  We followed the envelopes and answered the clues.  We did the marshmallow challenge.  We had to make a tower with spaghetti, string, and tape.  We ended up in first place.  It was so much fun.  By Emily R

# The Marshmallow Challenge

One thing we did that was fun was the marshmallow challenge.  The materials were tape, string, a marshmallow, and spaghetti.  We had to build the tallest tower with only 15 minutes. It was really fun and hard.  I hope we can do it again.  It was the best thing I have ever done.    By Adeline

This Thursday we did lots of stuff.  One was the marshmallow challenge.  That was where we got spaghetti sticks, 1 marshmallow, tape, and string.  We tried to make a tower.  We got to chose our own groups.  My friend and I were trying to make a tower.  We tried but we could not.  We needed more tape but we still tried our best.  One group did make a tower and they won.  I am happy that they won because we are friends.  I had lots of fun with my friends and my teacher.  By Ruth

# Cup Stacking Challenge

This week in 4th grade we did a challenge.  The challenge was the cup stacking challenge.  The rules of the challenge were you can’t touch the cups and you have to make a pyramid.  The materials were cups, a rubber band, and 4 pieces of string.  My group tried hard to solve the problem.  We got a rubber band and we took the string.  We tied the string to the rubber band.  Then we used the rubber band to move the cups.  I had a fun time with my friends.  By Ruth

We did a cup stacking challenge.  So what we did was try to make a pyramid out of cups without touching the cups.  We had 4 pieces of string and one rubber band.  What my group did was tie the string to the rubber band and then pulled the string to open and close the rubber band.  Then we put the rubber band on the cups.  It was really fun!  By Gwen
