SAVY Fall 2022–The One to Beat for Grades 3 & 4
Day 3: Saturday, November 5
On our last day of class, students learned about the largest collection of pennies gathered. They created and graphed the collection data on a line graph, looked for points of intersection, and determined what that indicated.
Then, they became record makers themselves and set a goal for their own personal record. They charted and graphed their data, and shared their goals with the class. We spent time in the computer lab learning and reviewing children and animals who have set and broken world records.
I hope that after taking this course, each child will be inspired to become “The One to Beat!”
Day 2: Saturday, October 29
Today we learned that a man literally walked on water! Remy Bricka walked 3,600 miles across the Atlantic Ocean from the Spanish Canary Islands to Trinidad! We determined the rate at which he traveled and the number of days it would take for him to complete the task at that rate.
We also learned that the longest paper chain created was 51.8 miles long. We completed our own paper chain challenge then charted and graphed the results.
Next week we will look at more record breakers and continue to make our own records!
Day 1: Saturday, October 22
Hello parents! I had a great time meeting your kiddos today! Students were introduced to the topic of variables and how to analyze a line graph to determine the varying elements. We learned about NBA star statistics, the world’s largest M & M mosaic, and a 14-year-old who holds 3 Guinness World Records and won the 2021 Scripps National Spelling Bee. We also created our own record by racing oranges with our nose.
We will continue to explore world records and learn how to interpret data. Thank you for sharing your child with me Saturdays at SAVY!
