Welcome to our blog!

We are a group of fifth graders in Arizona, USA, and this is our first blog post of the 2019-20 school year. This blog is where we will publish some of our writing and projects, and where we will try to make connections with other classes from around the world!

We are excited to participate in the Student Blogging Challenge this year. If your class would like to leave us a comment, we’ll add you to our blog roll and visit your blog throughout this challenge. We love to see what other classes are doing so we can learn along with you!

We have been in school since  July. We’ve learned a lot already and have had some fun experiences! Here’s a video showing some of our work in first quarter.

What was your favorite activity you’ve done in school so far this year?

What do you hope to learn through the Student Blogging Challenge?

    1. I learned how bats, moths, and spiders helped pollinate which I never knew they did before.


  1. Honestly my favorite experiment was how we got to test how many licks were to finish a tootsie pop.


  2. My favorite activity we have done this year is also the how many licks it takes to get to the center of the tootsie pop.


  3. Hi I’m Bryce, and we are growing organic and non organic sweet potatoes in class.


  4. I loved doing the experiment where we saw how many licks it took to get to the center of a tootsie pop.


  5. Hi! We are a gifted pull-out group who meets once a week to work on challenges together. We really enjoy STEM Challenges like Saving Sam (a silly worm who has a boating mishap and needs to be saved!) and participating in the Student Blogging Challenge.

    We are in grades 4 and 5 and think your makers space must be so amazing! What was your favourite creation so far?


    1. Hi Ms. Tabata’s class! Thank you for your comment. I lived in BC many years ago (in Langley). Our favorite project so far was making parachutes to model the landing of Mars rovers!


  6. My favorite thing we did this year was the chemical rockets we did outside.


  7. I liked everything but I mostly liked the how many licks does it take to get to the center of the tootsie pop challenge and the animal lab.


  8. I loved learning about the different phases of the moon, doing the parachute experiment, the balloon rocket experiment, and the Intrapid Skype.


  9. My favorite thing we did was the bridge making out of note cards and the balloon rockets.

  13. My favorite thing I’ve done this year is counting the amount of licks it would take to get to the center of the tootsie pop.


  14. My favorite activity that we have done this year was at the beginning of the year. It was the four fours activity, were we had to make the numbers 1-30 with only four fours.


  15. Hi everyone, I really liked doing the meteor crater experiment I thought it was really fun.


  16. I liked launching the rockets. I loved building and testing balloon rockets.

  20. Hey! One thing i learned about our Pollinator Models was from the Ants : The Ant protects the flower from other Pollinators. Awesome!


  21. I enjoyed seeing other groups put together their pollinator models and seeing them in action was even better.


  22. A cool thing I learned from the pollinator models was that the way an ant pollinates is that the pollen sticks to its stomach as it rolls in the flower.


  23. I learned that the pollen sticks to the legs and the belly of the beetle.
