It's been a great week so far.....
Monday we received Gospel bracelets and puzzles and did crazy skits in our tribes.
Tuesday we had beach day and played beachball volleyball in the gym.
Wednesday was favorite color/team day with a rotation of unique games and activities in the afternoon.
Thursday was PJ day with movies in the afternoon.
Friday is water park day!!
Sunday the whole school will sing for church!
We also delivered M & M's to the neighborhool houses to let them know how much we love our school and all about the MANY & MARVELOUS things that go on here every day!
He did a really cool experiment where he mixed two liquids together and counted to five, for five different beakers. Then they started turning colors every 5 seconds, at exactly the same rate he mixed the liquids.
He blew the cork off a bottle with hydogen peroxide in it. We learned that fuel needed oxygen to help it burn.
He mixed two liquids together and when he swirled it it turned one color and if you shook it hard it would turn another color.
He poured liquid nitrogen over a balloon and made it so cold that it shrank up.
He used red cabbage to decide if a liquid was an acid or base. If it's an acid it turns pink and if it's a base it will turn blue.
He said that diapers contain a powder that when it gets wet will soak up the wetness and turn to a gel.
He had 3 balloons filled with gas which he put a spark near. One was helium which just burst. One was hydrogen which caused a small explosion of fire. The third was filled with hydrogen and oxygen. We had to cover our ears when he put a spark near the balloon. The explosion was SO LOUD!! It was really cool.
4th Grade Reports.....
I thought that it was great because I liked how he pulled out dangerous animals, but yet he informed us that their venom couldn't hurt us. I thought it was cool to see an animal that I don't normally see every day. Grace

Boys bees get kicked out of the hive because their job is to guard the hive.
In the winter time the boy bees called drones have to leave the hive because there isn't room for them.
The queen bee can lay 1,500 eggs a day.
The queen bee can lay up to 2 million eggs in her lifetime.
When the queen bee dies, she has to be replaced by the other bees making another one.
Also, if a new hive is made, a new queen bee will go to that hive to get the hive started.
They travel 5,500 miles to make 1 pound of honey.
The 2nd graders decorated pumpkins today and delivered them to residents of Wellington Place. We brought smiles to many faces. When we gave the residents their pumpkin we also sang this little song:
O pumpkin bright, O pumpkin bright....May God's love shine in you tonight!
One lady even cried when we sang to her. She was so happy!
