Room 3 has worms (in our worm farm)!

Sarah and Chris from the Environmental Centre kindly brought us our free worm farm and set it up in our class. Sarah gave a great presentation on sustainability and eco-systems. We then learned how to put together a worm farm and how to look after our new pets...all 1000 of them!

Measuring and comparing!

We have been exploring methods of measuring and a variety of tools to use for this task. We are learning to use language such as "shorter, longer, taller or bigger than" when comparing two items. Staring at the baseline and ensuring there are no gaps in our tools is also an important aspect of this unit. The best part was bringing in our favourite stuffed animal to measure. The longest was Claudia's snake at 68 cubes long!
