In class, we did yoga and the body scan with Mrs. Sylvester!
How we did the body scan was the teacher put the body scan on. We all lied down on the floor with a Yoga mat. The body scan was a app that when you use it, it will teach you what to do! It said that we had to breath in and out!
It was really relaxing and I almost fell asleep!
Next we did Yoga, Mrs. Sylvester put on a video called Yoga for kids! It had lots of Yoga poses! It was also really fun and it make you feel better!
This week the whole 4th grade had Mini Medical School, we all did awesome things, like play games touch a heart, lungs and chicken wings. we all had lots of thing to learn about! All the of the teachers had a different subject like: Respiratory System, Digestive System, Nervous System and Musculo-Skeletal System! It was really interesting!
An important fact I learned was that the heart was very important to the body, also the brain!
The most interesting activity was Digestive System, because it was very interesting watching how the food digests. Did you know that our intestine is 11 ft? And my second favorite activity was the Nervous System! Because we played a game called Deers and Wolfs!
I had a hard time with watching the disection with the pig heart and lungs.
I would still like to learn about the brain and digestive system.
I think it’s important for me to learn about body systems because we would know what would happen if you eat lots of sugary snacks and junk food!
We have been learning about simple machines and how they make work easier.Just for fun we built a Rube Goldberg machines.
Rube Goldberg machines are opposite of a simple machine.
They are complicated machines that do a simple task.Our Rube Goldberg machine has 3 simple machines,2 inclined planes and a leaver.
Area Of Rectangles
We had to draw as many rectangles as we could think of that had area of 12 square unit.I drew 5.Then we had to answer a question-could we draw a square that had that area?
No,because if you want to draw square,the factors have to be the same.
