The Pencil Trick

Our science investigation for the day involved figuring out how to balance a pencil on its tip, using a wire, and clothesline as counterweights. It took a few tries before someone figured out how to attach the wire to the pencil. I love their faces when they achieve success. 

Also, one note about this week’s math homework. As I was reviewing those that have been turned in, I discovered that the challenge sheets didn’t come from the 2nd grade curriculum, but kindergarten  or 1st. I send page numbers online to the copy room and they must have gotten the pages from the wrong grade by error. Oh well, everyone should have an easy time completing it. There won’t be math homework this week since we are taking the unit test tomorrow.
