Today we had the opportunity to explore DNA at Cranbrook. We mashed up strawberries and added chemicals to it. We saw the DNA strands under the microscope. It was messy and fun!
On Tuesday, March 19th three teams of fifth graders attended the Battle of the Books. They worked so diligently over the last few months reading five books and study every detail! We were so excited when two of our teams tied for FIRST place! Go SCS!!!

We had a wonderful time touring the African American Art collection. Many students were able to provide the docents with additional information on the artists they had researched. They were very impressed!
In Spanish the 5th graders made a tree of thanks for what they are most grateful for. In our classroom, we spent some time telling each other what we value about them. We wrote one reason we are thankful for each classmate. This put a smile on everyone’s face!
Thinking, reading, regrouping… the couch helps us get through the day!
