Understanding that division is the separation of an amount into equal groups, our 4th graders used counters, dry erase markers, and our very own desks to practice solving these problems. We discovered that the “leftovers” that wouldn’t work into our equal groups were called remainders!
In 4th grade science we are studying the different ways scientists classify plants and animals. Last week we dissected tulips to identify and locate the male and female parts of a flower and discussed the role each plays in plant reproduction. We quickly discovered there’s MUCH more to know about a plant than just the leaves, stem, and flower!
