We have been busy learning about the moon. Here are the things we have been busy doing. We read nonfiction books about the moon and learned about its phases. We  made the phases of the moon and labeled them.

We used a class take home journal to record the phases of the moon.

We made several fun moon crafts and activities with the moon and the sweet phases of the moon.

Learning from history

Standard

We’ve just started one of my favourite units in Science:

“Learning from history”

This unit is divided in two periods: Prehistory and History:

preTitle Prehistory is the period that began when humans appeared on Earth and ended with the invention of writing.
The prehistoric people were nomads because they lived in small groups and moved constantly in search for food. They ate wild fruits and animals they hunted and fished.
They lived in caves and built tools, weapons and ornaments with bones and stones. His greatest discovery was fire.

History is divided in four stages:
Antiquity (Ancient History). Earliest civilizations with writing.
The Middle Ages. Began about 1500 years ago.
The Modern Age. It started about five hundred years ago.
The Contemporary Age. It started about two hundred years ago and extends to the present.

The next one is in Spanish but is an amazing time machine that will help you to travel back to the different periods

Roman civilization belongs to the Old Age and emerged in present Italy.
The Roman population consisted of free men and slaves. Slaves were owned by other people that made them work very hard.
The capital of the Roman Empire was Rome and it was ruled by an emperor. The language of the Romans was Latin.

HOW DID ROMANS LIVE?
Many Romans lived in cities surrounded with a wall. To carry water from one city to another they built aqueducts, (in Segovia is one of the best preserved).
In the Roman cities were different types of building such as circuses, theaters, amphitheatres, temples, markets, public baths,  justice buildings, etc..http://
The cities of the empire were connected to each other by causeways.

 The Modern Age

The modern age begins with the discovery of America and ends about two hundred years ago.
In the Modern era established new shipping routes and trade developed.

The age of exploration was about exploring america and discovering new lands. There were seven people who was in the age of exploration one was Christopher Columbus who started the age. Ponce De Leon who wanted to discover the fountain of youth. Vasco De Balboa who first saw the pacific ocean. Vasco Da Gama who sailed over the cape of good hope. Amerigo Vespucci was looked for signs of China and India. Ferdinand Magellan who first traveled all over the world. Lastly, John Cabot who first went to Newfoundland, Canada.

The Contemporary Age

This age is the one in which we live. In the early nineteenth century, the invention of the steam engine. This invention was applied to the industry and it was able to make many products in a short time. We also used in transportation the steam engine to make  trains, cars and planes.

Great advances have been achieved  since then like:
Medical advances such as radiography, antibiotics, anesthesia or vaccines.
Technological advances such as the automobile, the airplane, the rocket, computer, television and appliances.
Advances in lifestyle with schools that serve all children, homes for the elderly people , hospitals …

How are we? Discovery our body

Standard

My students have been learning about the human body. We watched and rewiewed some videos and we played some games I have posted before:

Third grades studied a basic human skeleton and memorized the names of the major bones. They also the different muscles that are attached to bones, which are jointed.

Learning has never been so easy or so much fun!

Forth Graders learned how the homan body systems function in order to maintain life. Here is one of them: The digestive system. We also made some posters based on the pyramid food.

  • Build a Body activity: If you would like to construct a human body system-by-system visit  Build a Body activity. Here you can drag and drop into place the organs and bones of a human body. Each organ and bone is accompanied by a description of the purpose of that bone or organ. The systems you can build  are the skeletal, digestive, respiratory, nervous, excretory, and circulatory systems.
  • Healthline Body Maps : provides interactive three dimensional models for learning about human anatomy. Body Maps has male and female models.
  • Bitesize: It’s worthy to visit this place where you can find tons of information about our body.

Enjoy it!!!

Our Solar System: to the infinity and beyond!!!
