We are in motion for the next few weeks. We gathered different balls from all of school.
We brainstormed all of the balls we could think of in 3-5 grades. This is what they came up with:
We had two different groups of 3rd-5th graders figure these out.
My favorites: cheeseball and meatball!
We described them, we classified them, and we talked about their attributes. For our hands on, we picked one of the balls. We drew our ball in our science log. Then we described it. Finally, tested them out. We used different blocks as ramps and predicted and tested how far they rolled.
