# It’s Plane to See….

On the Table

This week we participated in a discussion lead by Mia’s mother. We talked about the issues we face in our own community. These were things like homelessness, traffic, new developments going up, etc. The students were so insightful when thinking of solutions to these problems. It was a real treat hearing their ideas about adding more trash cans to cut down on litter, or helping with our local food drive. Ask your child about the discussion, I’m sure they will have a lot to say!

Plane Sense

In science we started our new investigations: Planes! We constructed our new planes and discussed variables that may affect the flight of our planes. The only materials we used were a propeller, rubber bands, popsicle sticks, and straws. Next week we will all put these variables into use while we fly our own planes!

Let’s Multiply!

In Math this week we

have overcome the challenge of writing numbers in exponential notation. Students learned that the large number at the bottom is the base number, the smaller number at the top is the exponent, and the exponent tells you how many times to multiply the base number by itself.
