KRAFT PROJECT KICK-OFF!
This week we kicked off our Kraft project. We are looking at the different packaging and thinking of ways we could change them. In these pictures we were looking at the packages, and writing down what we observed.

ADJECTIVE PRACTICE WITH WONDER TAGXEDOS
In LA we are learning about adjectives and character traits. In groups we brainstormed adjectives to describe each of the main characters in Wonder and then we created word pictures on tagxedo.com with the our best adjectives for each character. Below are all of our Tagxedos from each LA block.

After we finished our Wonder Tagxedos some of us had time to make Tagxedos using adjectives to describe ourselves and shapes that reflect our own personalities. Here are some of our creations:

ANCIENT EGYPT ASSEMBLY
We had an assembly sponsored by the PTA to kick-off our Egyptian unit.
We learned all about Egyptian kings and queens
and all about the Egyptian life and afterlife.

We learned that combining corn starch and water makes a substance
that acts like a solid but is a liquid!
