Animal Habitat Science Fair

December 7th we had a science fair.  In case you don’t know what a science fair is, I will tell you.  A science fair is a thing where you have to design something or create something.  What we did for the science fair was, we picked an animal that the teacher had to approve.  The second thing we did for the science fair was, we created our box with the animals we picked out.  The third thing we did was, we painted our boxes however we wanted to paint them.  The fourth thing we did was, we started to put glitter and little animal figures.  The fifth thing we did for the science fair was, we brought back our boxes that we worked on at home on Wednesday and we waited for the next day to come.  Then it was finally Thursday and we went to the cafeteria.  This lady put down tables so we could put our projects on the table.  Then we had to wait for Mrs. Moore’s class to come to the cafeteria then we could start.  The last thing we did for our project was we waited for the judges to come.  The judges were Mr.Bravo, Mr.Stern, and Chief Kelly.  Then they picked who got to win.  The kids that won in our class were Cody, Ruth,and Emily.  After they announced the winners we got our projects and left to the playground to play until the bell rang then we left.  By Adeline 

 

Hi my name is Eli.  What I did to my box was I got a box and I got materials for my box.  I got 3 toilet paper rolls.  Before I glued it, I painted my sky light blue and my grass green.  I did like little hills for my animal then I put a little pond in the middle of my jungle.  Then I put my trees glued down my box then we decorated our boxes.  Then we waited for Thursday because Thursday was our science fair.  That was when Chief Kelly, Mr.Bravo, and Mr.Stern came.  They were the judges.  Where we went is our cafeteria and we voted for whose is the best.  Well, the judges were the ones that voted, not us. While they were voting some other grades came to see our projects.  By Eli 

Phoenix Art Museum

Today we went to the art museum. It took 45 minutes to get there. Also there was famous art, like George Washington.  We walked for a hour, it was fun. Also our friend Adeline, her mom came.  The tour guide was from the art museum.  She had the teacher walk down a hallway and every step she got looked smaller.  What we did is we had our fingers and measured the teacher.  People say it was funny but also she got so tiny. We played a game of I Spy. We would get a piece of paper and there was a lot of glass boxes and we had to find the stuff that was on the paper. I found a few things but she said there were statutes. So I looked and I found two of them. They were in hidden doors that were open. They were right in the hallway. One box was flicking its lights. It scared us. By Christian

 

This week we did a lot of fun stuff.  All of the fourth graders went on a field trip to the Phoenix Art Museum. It is a place where there are different rooms.  Each room has art stuff and different kind of drawings in the rooms.  After 3 hours we left to go back to school and went straight to lunch.  We had tour guides that led us through the museum. We went to the museum at 8:30.A.M.  After lunch we started math in the afternoon until the end of the day and then it will be a normal day on Thursday.  By Sara

Today at the Phoenix Art Museum we looked at amazing art that was cool!!! We looked at a piece of art that is called fairy flies. After that we looked at a art made out of trash, it was really cool! Then we looked at  fashion art, it was cool. Then we looked at art called hot mess.  My favorite is the fairy lights because it likes your in a black hole with lights.  That is what we did. By Gwen

Dia de los Muertos

Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a when people celebrate people who died in Mexico.  You can celebrate it even if you don’t live in Mexico.  Mrs Gibson is a Mexican teacher at our school.  She came with her children and we talked about what you do for Day of the Dead.  Then we got a paper of a sugar skull and colored it.  We got Day of the Dead bread from Mexico.  It is way better than American bread.  The bread had colored candy sprinkles on it.  It was very good.  By Eli

November 2nd was Dia de los Muertos.  Mrs. Gibson told us all about Dia de los Muertos.  She said that Dia de los Muertos is a holiday that is celebrated in Mexico and sometimes in the United States.  Mrs. Gibson gave us bread of Dia de los Muertos and a paper of a sugar skull to color.  Mrs. Gibson talked about La Catrina, a skeleton that has a fancy dress.  The poor people made La Catrina to make fun of the rich people.
