Co-op Oct. 1, 2013

Our brains were woken with a game of bananagrams. Everyone worked together to help each other use their tiles effectively.

 We continued our work with factors and prime and composite numbers.  We had some fun with alliteration and then discussed the main characters in Runaway King.

Today we also did some science. We went over the scientific method and how to write up a science report. We did two experiments. One on density and one on viscosity. They had to write up their hypotheses and their findings once the experiment was underway. We created liquid layers to demonstrate the different densities. I know that many have done this one before but it's a fun one and they always love it! They we studied viscosity and what that word means. We timed different liquids as they were poured down a ramp. For the second part of the experiment, we heated the liquids and retested. We compared the findings and discussed variables that could have affected our findings (eg. air temp cooling down the liquids).

The rest of the day was spent on reading The Runaway King and finishing the portraits. I think they turned out great!
