We had a little fun today getting in touch with our inner Van Gogh!
But you know that Common Core teachers don't just do one thing so we also….
•Integrated science by painting on newspaper (we're doing Wood & Paper right now, Focus Question: What happens to paper when it gets wet?)
•Made our Valentine Bags for the party on Friday.
•Integrated math by comparing the quantities of hearts we had on our bags.
•Integrated social studies with a discussion about how we were recycling the newspaper to use for something else.
Oh, and…. we found out that we are very talented at making newspaper hearts very artistic and beautiful! Ya know… we're just good like that. :o)
