Grade 3 How the World Works

This week we began our new unit of inquiry, How the World Works.  Grade 3 will be learning about the Earth and how it changes over time.  During library, the students started their research to write breaking news stories about different forms of weather that can change how Earth looks.  

This week they also did some creative writing around the word love.  We then turned their writing and pictures into a quilt to hang outside our classroom.  

Finally, to help us to understand multiplication better, we made multiplication towers using graph paper.  This visual will help them to better understand that they do not have to count each block but instead count just the top row and the first side row to find out how many blocks altogether.
