I hope you're all enjoying the unexpected holiday!
I thought a snow day was the perfect time to introduce our new project. We're going to be doing our own version of the Winter Olympics as practice for the State Science Test.
Since the Winter Olympics in Vancouver are beginning just as we go on break, we'll be doing the bulk of the project when we return to school the last week in February. In the meantime though, I'm going to ask each of you to choose your favorite Olympic sport and find out more about it.
We were going to be working on this in school this week - and we will tomorrow if we have school - but you can start thinking about it now if you happen to stop by here today.
You can start at the Official Website of the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics.
Pick a sport that you'd like to learn more about and start researching about it.You can follow the sport next week during the Olympic week that we're on vacation and then report back to us at the end of February.
We'll talk more about this tomorrow but you can start thinking about it now - you know - while you're off enjoying your SNOW DAY!
