Physical Properties

4th grade has been very busy working on physical properties. A fun way to get some practice was to take everyday items and list the physical properties on each item. We have also been using a balance scale and working with partners. Lots of learning is going on! On a side note, quiz your children about math. We have been working on fractions, decimals, and percents. Some math and science marvels in the 4th grade!
