Welcome to your first official day back! As many of you already know, we will not be giving grades for the work you complete this week. We will be giving you and your parents feedback on how much you completed, did you master the material, or do you need to continue practicing. Ms. Brokaw and I will be having live office hours in Microsoft Teams from 11:00am-12:00pm and 1:00pm-2:00pm daily. If you have questions, or just want to say hi, you can visit with one of us there. Ms. Brokaw explains in this post how to find this meeting. If this is the first time you are joining us, you will need to look at our fist post from last Monday.

We typically have a rotation menu we follow throughout our math block, so this will be a little different. I am going to list tasks I would like you to accomplish. I will be posting new information daily, so make sure you are checking in. Continue Reading →

Denali National Park and Preserve: The Science of Sled Dogs

By Serenity, Bri, and Nicholas

Today we did a virtual field trip Skype with Ranger Laura. She was in Alaska. We were learning about adaptations of sled dogs in Denali. A few things we learned about Denali National Park and Preserve is that it is very big! It is 6 million acres, which is the size of Connecticut! It is also very windy and cold. Speaking of cold, the lowest temperature recored there was minus 54 degrees! We mostly learned about the 5 adaptations of sled dogs. The five are bushy tail to keep warm, guard hair that acts like a thin raincoat, panting to cool down, tough toes so they do not get cuts on their paws, and counter current circulation.

The dogs that would run in the pack were the leader, swing dogs, team dogs, and the wheel dogs. The leader dog leads the pack. The swing dogs are team players that make wide turns. Team dogs are strong! Finally, wheel dogs are closest to the sled so they need to be the calmest.

This was really fun because we got to look  at the sled dogs. They were really cute! It was also good because we got to do activities along with learning. I am very interested in the sled dogs. I think you should research more about them.

By Bosten, Evan, and Christian

Today we learned about Denali and sled dogs during a Skype from Ranger Laura. Somethings we learned are that Denali is the tallest mountain in North America, and Denali National Park and Preserve is 6 million acres of Alaskan forest. Something else we learned is that Denali has one road, its coldest temperature was minus 54 degrees Fahrenheit, and when it snows the rangers have to use sled dogs. These dogs have two coats of fur, use panting to make themselves cooler, and have countercurrent circulation. Countercurrent circulation is a way for a dog to keep their blood warm. Each of these dogs need a different personality and characteristics for different places on the sled team. These dogs have adapted to Alaskan snow.

Today we went on a fun virtual field trip with Ranger Laura about adaptations of sled dogs in Denali, Alaska. We learned so much fun stuff and interesting facts about adaptations of sled dogs. We had fun activities that came along with the Skype. We also learned about Denali National Park and Preserve and the mountains.

Some other things we learned were sled dogs weigh 50 to 90 pounds. They also have two types of fur that act as warmth and a protector from water. Did you know sled dogs use their big bushy tail to keep them warm? How they do this is curl up and put their big bushy tail over their noses! Another adaptation that sled dogs have are their thick paws that help keep them from getting cuts and rocks embedded in them. These sled dogs run about 7 mph, but race dogs run much faster.

In Denali, there is the tallest mountain in North America! Did you know Denali National Park and Preserve is 6 million acres? If you didn’t know already, Denali is in Alaska. I hope you learned a lot about Denali and their sled dogs! Next time you visit Alaska, make sure to go check out the sled dogs.

Here are a few pictures from our Skype!

Have you been to Alaska?

The Intrepid Sea, Air, & Space Museum

Welcome back to our class blog! Recently we went on a Virtual Field Trip (Skype) with a very nice man name Mr. Frantz. He works at The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. The museum has a lot of spacecrafts. The first space shuttle got into the air by riding on a normal airplane. Unfortunately, it did not reach space. We learned a lot more fun facts like the first animal launched into space was a dog. If you sent a balloon into space, it would expand or get bigger. One of the most interesting facts is that the museum is on a ship that is bigger than the Titanic, and you can actually see how they retrieved space capsules from the ocean. Mr. Frantz told us facts about the planets. For example, the distance between the earth and the moon is the same as if you lined up all the planets in between, and if you enter a black hole, you can’t escape. Some of the most funniest facts are that astronauts have to wear diapers, and sandwiches are banned in space.

In science class we did a fun Skype with The Intrepid Sea, Air, & Space Museum. We learned so many fun and interesting facts about the museum. Did you know that the Soviet Union was the first to send a dog into space? It is called The Air Museum because it holds a lot of airplanes from the past, sea because it is a big ship on the sea, and space because they know and talk a lot about space. The next time you go to New York, we highly recommend going to The Intrepid Sea, Air, & Space Museum.

By Addison, Carly, Ethan, and Connor

In science class we learned all about what things were used to get to space. I enjoyed learning and listening. I personally love all things space. A couple things we learned was that Russia sent the first satellite, dog, and first woman to space. We also learned that the Russians were against the Americans, and it was called the Cold War. The two countries were in a race to see who could make it to space first. Another thing I learned was astronauts had to eat dehydrated foods. I enjoyed doing this topic. This was fun and a good experience. I think Mrs. Moore is one of the best science teachers ever!

What virtual field trips have you experienced? 

Do you know why sandwiches were banned from being consumed in space?
