Weekly Update 9/14/12

This week's bloggers are very funny:  Trey, Jackie, Michael P, Carol and Matt!  Can you find their alien faces?

In Advisory we are making bumper stickers.  They represent the T-wolf pride and Thomas pride. They are very colorful, and we are going to hang them up above the lockers when we are done.  The best ones will be hung up in the office on a big banner!  Some of them say, "Bully free since 1963," "Paw-pride is on your side," "Bully free zone,"  and "TMS Thomas is a bully free zone."  When we are done we will post pictures of our finished bumper stickers.

In science Mr. Aho assigned each of us different animals' eyes to study.  We had to go on Google and look up facts about the animal's pupils, whether it could see color or not, and how it could see in different lights.  We learned that some animals can see objects better than others.  Matt learned that the cuttlefish has a "W" shaped pupil and can see better in dim light than in bright light.  Carol learned that the chameleon has eyes that move around really easily, so that gives chameleons really good eyesight.
Jack researching a husky's fantastic eyes.

Isabel learning about the gecko's eyes.

In social studies we each brought in an artifact from home.  An artifact is an object that has cultural or historical significance.  We shared our artifacts with partners who then told the class about what we brought. Our artifacts are important to us and our families for different reasons.
