Ms. Fischer's kindergartners have been integrating their apple unit throughout the curriculum. The students graphed their favorite types of apple and discovered how the texture of apples change using a variety of cooking experiences. They learned poems and songs about apples, made apple trees out of tissue paper and discovered there is a star inside every apple.
Ms. Ralston's first-graders have been integrating their water unit. As they experimented with using the scientific process, they learned about the three properties of water: liquid, solid and gas. They used their math skills to collect and record data. They wrote predictions about what would happen to the water in different stages, and they saw how water changes as they painted over different textures.
