A Big Bite

It was certainly an interesting weather week in Franklin!  A snowy wet Monday followed by the first snow day on Tuesday was a fun way to start our week.  We started Wednesday with a presentation on the First Nations of the Arctic by the Haffenreffer Museum.  Students were able to touch various animal skins and one of them was a mink.  This inspired Mrs. A to bring her best yard sale find ever to school, a mink coat!!!! Ask your child how much Mrs. A paid for the coat. :)  Each student was able to try the coat on and we all agreed that even though it was warm, it was HEAVY!!  What a great way to kick off our unit on Canada!
We learned about weathering and erosion by participating in an experiment called, "Sugar Shake."  Check out the pictures below!
The Princess in Black is a popular series in fourth grade and we were able to participate in a webinar with the authors, Shannon and David Hale.  It was so cool to hear the authors talk about their books.
The community service project for F. J Múgica School in Oaxaca, Mexico, kicked into high gear.  We will be sending off our donations next week.  We also were able to Skype with some of the students at the school!  We shared information about US culture and answered their questions about Kennnedy school.  They practiced speaking English with us.  We will Skype with them again when they receive the package.  Great job to everyone who has made this project happen.
Division is all the rage in math and it is DIFFERENT from how parents learned how to divide.  You are welcome to join us on Tuesday at 9 for a math class if you would like to learn more about the, "low stress," method of long division.  There will be a math test next Friday.
Have a great weekend.
Mrs. Williams
