Week 34 in Mr. Houck’s class, by Emmaline Johnston

Every week one student in our class gets to sit out the super quiz and write the weekly update on our class.  This week’s update was done by 7th grader Emmaline Johnston.  Thanks, Emmaline!

This week in Mr. Houck’s class we started the Great American Book Return, worked on our object stories, watched The Energy Gamble, and shared our disease research projects.

This week The Great American Book Return has begun. Last year the winner returned 48 books! So if you see any books with a teacher’s name written on the top make sure to get them back in class, and maybe get a prize.

We have also been working on our object stories, a story about a special item that has a special meaning in your life. On Monday, May 14th we will be sharing some cool stories.

The Energy Gamble was a movie that talked mostly about all the little things that people in California could do to save energy. During the movie some people fell asleep, so Mr. Houck put on the chicken mask and touched one of their feet, which woke them up with screaming ear to ear. The whole class burst out in laughter.

We also finished researching our diseases, and shared them this week, getting information from each disease to be ready for our jeopardy review, and then the final test next week.
