"How Much is a Million"

Lisa Christensen

Mrs. Peery helped the 4th grade kickoff their Place Value unit by reading the story, "How Much Is a Million."  Chairs were lined up in the front each representing a place ten times bigger than the next.  Mrs. Peery brought her chair which was the Millions place!

In science we were investing the forces acting on the water bottle for a successful flip. Students determined that it's most successful with about 1/4 a bottle of water. They know that gravity is acting on the water, but with only 1/4 of the bottle filled there is a force holding the water in the bottom of the bottle, making it more balanced for a land.
