We have started the year with our unit, Independent Me
So far, an important fact I learned was 9-10 year students need to have no more than 24 grams of sugar.
The most interesting activity was dissecting a pigs heart.
I had a hard time with remembering hard science words from mini medical school.
I would still like to learn more about good food choices.
I think it’s important for me to learn about body systems because we need to know what is going in our body and how thing work.

We have been learning about simple machines and how they make work easier. Just for fun we have built Rube-Goldberg machines.
Rube-Goldberg machines are the opposite of a simple machine. They are complicated machines that do a simple task . My Rube-Goldberg machine is made up of 4 simple machines levels,wedge,wheel and axel. Our Rube-Goldberg machine is not quite finished but our team is trying their best. Our Rube-Goldberg machine is going to lift a toy car into the air.

Area of Rectangles

At first we had to draw as many rectangles as we could think of that had a area of 12 square unit.
I drew 3 rectangles.
Then we had to answer a question-could we draw a square that had that area? The answer is no because the factors are not equal if the factors were equal it will be a square.
