We were also introduced to "Magic Phones". We use these phones during "Read to Self" so
that we can whisper read and still hear ourselves. The phone "magically" magnifies our
voices so that we can hear ourselves without interrupting anybody else who is reading.
We ended our week by talking about different kinds of bread and the active ingredients in
bread. We then used our scientist skills to make predictions about what happens to yeast
when it is mixed with water. We practiced using our senses to observe the experiment and
come up with our conclusions. We talked about the importance of wafting when smelling a
science experiment, and using all our senses to come up with a conclusion. We even used
our sense of taste because after the experiment we snacked on whole grain tortillas and
whole wheat bread. Yum!
