Miss Prinz’s 5th grade class filled up their cookie compliment chart again, earning them a “Glow Day.” The entire day was full of review activities that were all glow-themed for students. The morning started with students getting their very own ticket to enter the room inviting them to attend the glow party. Students then got to participate in math centers consisting of glow bowling, glow ring toss, glow tic-tac-toe, and glowing task cards. After the centers, students did a neon and glow-themed reading packet while they got to enjoy some of their very own glow gear and build some accessories. Students ended the day with glow-themed jeopardy, which got pretty competitive! Everyone did so well that each student went home with a glowing prize to remember the day. Great job, students!

Ms. Wagor's 5th grade students were asked the question: How fast does the Earth spin? By acting as the Earth spinning around the sun, students quickly realized the sun isn’t moving at all. In the activity, students used their bodies as a kinesthetic model of the Earth to understand how the speed of the Earth’s spin affects the length of a day. Students learned that when their face spun towards the sun, their back spun away from the Sun. This proved that when sunrise is happening for one side of the world, sunset is happening for the other side of the world. To answer the initial question, students learned that the circumference of the Earth is about 24,000 miles. Therefore, if it takes the Earth 24 hours to do one spin all the way around itself, that's 24,000 miles divided by 24 hours in one spin. If you do the math, that equals 1,000 miles an hour! The class was shocked! Great job, all!
