Parable Video

History Class 

We were learning about the Ministry of Jesus in history class. So, we made a video about the parable of the Workers and the Vineyard (Eleventh Hour). We had a lot of fun producing this video. Making videos is teaching the fifth grade about teamwork and communicating. Enjoy!

Have you ever seen a geode? A geode a small cavity in rock lined with crystals or other mineral matter.

These are pictures of a real geode that we got to explore in our class today. Geodes are using sedimentary 
volcanic rocks.

Our New Science Topic

We are moving into our new unit in Science.

Today we studied rock formation and the different types of rocks; sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic rocks. We had two different rock kits that we explored. Looking at the rocks under the microscope was amazing!

The Nativity Story

We had a really good time making this video. We completed this production in just a few days! We are learning the importance of story boarding and working as a team. This video production was inspired by some cut-away animation playmobil videos we found on the internet.
