Hello fourth graders! I hope you are enjoying your break! I just wanted to let you know that I will be giving an extension on the mystery novel projects. I know that many of you didn't bring home your projects or books because of the snow day. The projects will be due January 12th, which gives you a whole extra week once we return from break.
Enjoy the holidays, the snow, and the time off! See you next year!! :)

Today in Science, you learned how to do the scratch test to identify minerals. The property that we are testing is hardness. You learned that the hardest mineral in our set couldn't be scratched with a fingernail, penny, OR a paperclip. We identified that mineral as quartz.
The softest mineral in our set could be scratched by even your fingernail! We identified that mineral as gypsum.
