Temperature is nothing new for 4th graders, but some of the vocabulary can be unfamiliar. We worked with various thermometers (traditional, round, etc.) to determine the
temperature. We also found the differences between two temperatures. Finally, we
discussed words that could be used to describe what is happening to the
temperature - rising, falling, increasing, decreasing, etc.
I'm a wife, mother of two, and 4th grade teacher who is totally in love with her job! I teach math and science to roughly 40 kids a year. I've tried to model my classroom after this quote by Elliot Eisner - "When the joy is in the journey, the journey will be pursued." I feel very fortunate to work in an amazing school district, where it is commonplace to push students to their full potential and settle for nothing less. I truly feel blessed!!
