In chapter 4 we are looking at the processes involved in getting "food and fiber" from farm to table. Today (May 30th) in class we took notes and watched a series of short video clips about some ways that foods are produced, processed, packaged and transported. Follow the link below and view the videos. If you were absent today, you should watch these! The items in the videos include: corn, tomatoes, tofu, cheese, chocolate, bread, milk, and dried fruit. Yum!
We watched this video in class on THURSDAY May 29. If you were absent, you need to watch it!
See me if you need a copy of the video quiz to complete as you watch!

Explore changes of state with this simulation
Today we continued looking at water. We discussed where the water is on earth and how it changes from state to state. We also talked about the water cycle that circulates water from place to place and acts as a natural "cleanser" of water.
We are making "informational brochures" that describe what the water cycle is and how it works. We will finish the brochures in class tomorrow.
Click here to explore the water cycle.
Here is another interactive water cycle.
