Candy Erosion

In fifth grade, we are learning about weathering and erosion.  We did a simple experiment to see how water affects a skittle or an M&M.  We learned that water will break down (weathering) the color and the letter on the piece of candy.  Then it will be washed away (erosion) with the water.

We had the opportunity to have Mr. Todd Bradford, a district math specialist, come into classrooms this past week and work with students on various skills.  In Miss Bird’s fifth grade, he came in to solidify adding and subtracting fractions. The students love when Mr. Bradford come in to teach. Thanks, Mr. Bradford for a great lesson!
