Then students could free explore.
Today students were treated to Schoolhouse Symphony in the morning. This great program teaches students about instruments and music elements.
The students have been waiting to learn about Tornadoes. We did a minilesson to go along with our Wizard of Oz theme. It was probably the most favorite activity of the year so far. We began by reading the book It's a Tornado!
Next, we created our own tornado using two liter bottles, tape, and water. It was a HIT! It leaked a bit, but was a great visual for the students. I modeled several times. Then pulled a name to let a student try.
I love how this student showed the water leaking from the bottles. Very detailed!
Now tomorrow we will learn about rainbows and do some more inferring. We are counting down the days to our field trip!
