On Tuesday in science we cut open fruits and counted the seeds inside. I looked and I had five seeds in my bean pod. I learned that in science we call bean pods fruits because they have seeds. But, in real life we call them vegetables. It is important to share this with the whole world so they learn that it is a fruit in science and a vegetable in real life.
Today in Science we opened an apple and counted the seeds inside. We looked at them and there was only one seed inside. We learned that corn and apple are both technically fruits. It is important because I thought corn was a vegetable, did you?
Yesterday in science we opened a peach and a tomato. I thought that the tomato would have 100 seeds in it but it turned out it had 101 seeds. I learned that fruit can be anything with a seed. It is important because if you know this when you grow up you will be better at science.
Yesterday we were cutting fruit in the classroom. We cut an avocado and the avocado had one seed, called a pit. I leaned that avocados have one big seed in them. Avocados are important because they help us make spicy foods.
On STEM Friday last week we used materials to make a boat and we tried to make it strong. But, Ms. Buikema put too much weight in it and the boat sunk. It was still a fun day. We learned how to make boats and what supplies worked best. It is important because it was our first STEM Friday and it was fun when we sunk.
I heard some helpful hints today in math if I get stuck on a problem. Some of the hints are ask someone at your table group to explain, use manipulatives, draw a picture, and use the posters and more. I learned hints if I’m stuck so I don’t give up. It is important because you must know what to do during math workshop.
