We continued exploring capacity through a relay race outside and a race to 500mL as well.
First, we estimated which of the 4 cups had the lowest capacity and should be the first cup filled during the relay. Then, we went outside and made 4 teams and raced to fill the cups with sponges. The class estimated the goblet should fill first, but it was actually third. However, we came inside and measured the capacity in mL and even though the black mug filled first, the goblet and egg cup had lower capacities.
Next, the kids were doing some mental addition, measuring mL and trying to get 500mL first!
5F French Café
The students in 5F have now all had a real conversation with another person who speaks French and what a wonderful job they did! Today we celebrated with pétit pain au chocolat and juice while watching another version of The Three Little Pigs. Their plays are coming along well and they will continue to rehearse next year and then perform for the class. They have also started a new unit on Canadian wildlife.
