Finding the Lost Colony

Today was an interesting day. We began by creating a goal for the day. Some choose behavior, some academic, some social. We rotated into our reading groups and made a significant dent on our novels. In math, we used clocks in order to calculate elapsed time. We also created benchmarks for time-sec.min. and hour. After lunch we had our 4th Wordly Wise test, which seemed to go fairly well. In Mrs. Bushman's Science class we created a cloud in a jar, learned about water cycle, and created video. In History we pushed the desks back, took off our shoes, popped popcorn, and weeded through the research we brought in about the Lost Colony. We are trying to find the answer to the history mystery of the Roanoke Island colony. Each bit of information causes us to have more questions than answers. Are we ever going to get to the bottom of this mystery???
