This was emailed to me by a friend who teaches 4th and 5th graders….it’s so cute I thought I would share it with everyone!
Science Sillies from the 4th and 5th grades
- The spinal column is a long bunch of bones. The head sits on the top and you sit on the bottom.
- It’s so hot in some places that people have to live in other places.
- The four seasons are salt, pepper, mustard, and vinegar.
- The alimentary canal is located in the northern part of Indiana.
- Thunder is a rich source of loudness.
- Some people can make out the time by looking at the sun, but I have never been able to make out the numbers.
- One of the main causes of dust is dirt.
- A monsoon is a French gentleman.
- To keep milk from turning sour, keep it in the cow.
- Water vapor gets together in a cloud. When it gets big enough to be called a drop, it does.
- You can listen to thunder and tell how close you are to getting hit. If you don’t hear it, you got hit, so never mind.
We had been studying Hanukkah all week. On the last day, we played the dreidel game. The children each won some gelt, which is the gold foiled candy money. One of the 3-year-olds in my class said “Look Miss Wendy! I won Hanukkahs!”
This week as we were dismissing the afternoon preschool class I called a little girl off of the swing who was taking a lot of time. I said,” Alexis, it’s time to go.” The girl on the swing next to her said,” That’s my daddy’s car’s name. I asked her what she meant and she replied,” His car’s name is A Lexus too!!”
Cold season hit our Pre-k class very hard with many sniffles, coughs, and sneezes. We were sitting in circle one day when one little guy sneezed. The friend next to him was excited to point out “Austin!! Look!! You have God Bless You all over your shirt!!”
Brian’s Mom came in with a darling story. Brian asked, “Mom, today is a holiday just for girl’s right?” “Brian, why would you think that St. Patrick’s Day is just for girls?” Brian explained. “I wear shorts not panties.” Happy St. Panties Day to all!
