Students really enjoyed reviewing their geometry vocabulary using Chromebooks to participate in a Kahoot interactive game!

Students used tools and their knowledge of electrical energy to build a complete electric circuit. Students were challenged to light up Mrs. Gunn’s room. They did a great job!

As a way to review for the Measurement Conversions Test, students played Mrs. Gunn’s version of Pokemon Go! Students had to find questions around the classroom, solve them, and scan a QR code to check their answer. If they got the right answer, they earned a Pokemon character!

Recently, our school participated in Boosterthon’s Fun Run as a way to raise money for our school. Students earned pledges and ran laps through the glow course. It was AWESOME!

Students have started to study energy and different forms of energy. One type of energy we will focus on is electrical energy. Students worked together to light a small bulb using only a batter and a wire. They learned that the battery serves as the energy source and the metal wire carries the electrical energy to the bulb, causing it to light! Students also discovered that a magnetic field is created from the flow of electricity and impacts the function of a magnetic compass.

Fourth graders participated in UM’s water festival. Students learned about water filtration, the water cycle, and aquifers. We also go to have a “picnic” (in the gym) and watch a fun magic show about water! We had a blast!

Students worked in groups to solve division problems and interpret remainders. Students determined it they should add one to the quotient, split the remainder, or forget about it!
