Since Wednesday was officially the end of the school year for us, we gave all of our different teachers presents. We gave them each a glass bowl shaped like an apple, some caramel that I made, and something from Joey. Joey gave each of them something different. For our band teacher, Joey needle felted a clarinet, a needle felted apple for our ES, and then for our art teacher Wilson crocheted a bookmark. Then for my speech teacher, I made a twizzler as a bookmark.

We also gave them all cards. Joey and Wilson collected some fallen flowers from outside for us to smash on top of the cards to get all the color out of them. We used a hammer to smash the flowers onto watercolor paper.

Great Harvest Bread Company

On Wednesday we went on a tour, like the one last week at Chili's. We went to the Great Harvest Bread Company. We got to go in the back to see how they make the bread, grind the grain, and bake the bread.
The owner also showed us how the seeds grow into sprouts and we each got a handful of dough to shape and bake.
At the end we got to ask questions. We all got a slice from a loaf of a cinnamon white chocolate bread for each question we asked.

This week we went on a tour of a Chili's restaurant. We got to order some food (for free!) and then we got to go in the back to see how they make everything and where they store all of the ingredients. We also got to see some interesting machines that are used for things like heating chips, mashing potatoes, and making milk-shakes. They also showed us the inside of the soda machine.

At the end, we got to eat our food. Then we each got a milk-shake and free meal for whenever we come back.

My Science Book

My science book is just like my S.S. book, only for science. The only other differences are that my science book is spiral-bound and is blue instead of red.
My last couple pages were about 5 of the body systems and light. My first one was about DNA.

The systems that I covered in "The Body Systems" are the nervous system, skeletal system, circulatory system, digestive system, and the respiratory system.

My favorite one is the page about light because of how I set it up where the writing is on the sun's rays.
