Hello!!!  Welcome to MONDAY! :)  You guys did an amazing job on your end-of-level testing last week.  Thanks for working hard and getting all of those reviews done!  They may not have been super fun, but I know they helped you on your SAGE test.

Next week we will start on our Health Core.  HOORAY!

Here's what is on the agenda for today:


How many of you know what a catapult is???

Are you ready to create your own catapult?  You will need THIS worksheet and will work in groups of 4 to design your own catapult to see how far your team can launch a marshmallow.  The winning team gets a prize.

Good luck and have FUN learning!!! :) :) :)
