Check out the lighthouses we made! Ms. Fallon helped us draw lighthouses because West Quoddy Head lighthouse was our first stop in northern Maine. We learned that the coast of Maine was formed by the glaciers during the Ice Age and lighthouses help guide the ships.
In Hershey, PA we learned what it would be like to mass produce candy by wrapping jelly beans in tinfoil. Each student had one job to do, whether it was Wrapper Cutter, Candy Placer, or Candy Wrapper. It was a challenge to communicate with one another to try to wrap as many jellybeans as possible in 3 minutes. Most of us agreed that this would not be the type of job that we would want for 40 hours a week and now understand why many factories use machines.

To add to the fun of this week, our chicks hatched! We got to watch one of them hatch in the incubator last week and the kids named her Eggsie. The rest will be named on Monday, but overall we are enjoying the addition of our 5 fluffy and feathered friends to our class, while learning about the life cycle of chickens.
