Observing Evaporation!

Water Vapor

This week in our water investigation, scientists observed thimg_1779e evaporation process. Students recorded how temperature effects the rate of evaporation. Taking a closer look, scientists looked at how the surface area of a liquid effects the rate of evaporation. Be strongly recommend to pay attention to this article. As a class, we discussed how condensation occurs when water vapor contacts a cool surface and changes to a liquid. Students pondered how evaporation and condensation contribute to the movement of water through the water cycle.

 

Friendship Threads in Third Grade

Third Grade friends are learning how to become effective thinkers and communicators. Over the past couple of weeks, students are practicing being mindful of verbal and nonverbal communication. With verbal communication, Third Graders considered word choice and tone when speaking. Using our class rule #3: Think, say and do things in a positive way, friends are finding ways to best articulate their feelings. Students are learning to process nonverbal communication as they work and learn together. A few nonverbal cues we practice daily are eye contact, body language and appropriate touch.
