Today we had the pleasure of joining Mrs. Backey for a fun project. The students studied pennies from different decades. We learned about the pictures and the words on the penny. Next the students sorted the pennies by decade. We discussed the oldest pennies and the newest pennies. The students found it funny to learn which decade the teachers were born in 😄 Each student graphed their data. Throughout our work we noticed some pennies were so dirty and discolored they were hard to read. Then the students started to conduct an experiment to see which cleaner will clean the pennies the best. We will have results of our experiment later this week.
The Students also learned a secret of mine on Friday!
