Brain vs. Calculator!

How to play:
Students team up in groups of 3.
One person is the Game Master, one is the brain and one is the calculator.
Give each group a multiplication sheet full of problems from 2times table to 10.
The calculator and brain will solve the problem and Game Master needs to award the student who is faster!

After playing the game, we realized that in each turn, the BRAIN is always faster than the CALCULATOR!

It’s TEA TIME in second grade!

Watch our class video to see what we learned!

Using Solid Materials from Outdoors to make Tea!

4.5 Investigation


  • Sticks, twigs, dirt, sand, rocks, flowers, grass
  • A bottle
  • Water

Students went outside and gathered an array of solid outdoor materials.  Then they soaked their mixture in water to see how their “tea” would turn out.  Some students had a dark brown tea, while others had a sweet pink tea!



Happy Earth Day-April 22nd!


For each student:

  • 2 pieces of white paper A4 size- (recycled paper is best)
  • pens/crayons
  • string


For whole class:

  • Shredded scrap paper  
  • hole puncher

First, students will decorate the 2 sheets of A4 (hole punched) paper using markers, pencils and crayons.  They can decorate their paper with Happy Earth Day, Reduce-Reuse-Recycle, etc. 

Next, students will put the yarn through the A4 papers and begin to sew up their papers together.  Sew 3 parts of the paper and leave one section open.  

Last, place the scrap paper into the opening.  Sew the opening shut and you have yourself an Earth Day pillow!
