Fourth-Grade Science News

The fourth graders have recently completed a Science Unit about Waves. In this unit, students explored and created waves using tubs of water, coils, and slinkies for hands-on activities. Students also explored sound waves using an online oscilloscope. Discussion occurred around technology and how "waves" are used. Students drew the waves after their exploration of waves using all of the formats. There were many fantastic conversations about waves and making connections to how they are used in our everyday lives.
