In the Swing of Things

We certainly are back in full swing!  We have been very busy learning the routines and procedures of 4th grade.  In English, we are working with nouns.  Today we learned some rules for when a noun ends in a -y.  In Science, we are studying the scientific method, and today we did an experiment in which we tried to "Save Fred."  "Fred" is a gummy worm who lost his life jacket (a gummy lifesaver).  The students had to figure out how to get Fred's life jacket on him without touching him or the life jacket with their hands.  They could only use paperclips.  It was lots of fun!  Below is a video of one of the groups solutions to how to "Save Fred."  Have a wonderful night!
