We have learned about many things in science this year. One thing we learned was information about the solar system. Another thing we learned about was weather. A third topic we have learned about is electricity. These are just a few of the many topics we have learned about in science this year.

We learned a lot about the solar system. My favorite topic was phases of the moon. I also liked learning about Earth's revolution. Putting the planets in order was a little difficult, but I figured it out. Learning about the solar system was a lot of fun!

Next, we learned about weather. We started with temperature. We used a thermometer to measure it. We used other tools such as wind vanes, rain gauges and anemometers. Learning about the weather made it easier for me to understand the meteorologist when I watch the news.

The last topic we learned about was light and electricity. My favorite lesson was learning about insulators and conductors. We tested them by using metals, wood, batteries and light bulbs. I also enjoyed learning about static electricity. We blew up balloons and stuck them on our hair, shirts and other things like the wall. That was so much fun! Everyone had a great time in science that day. We also learned about electrical safety. Electricity can be very dangerous.

All of the topics we've learned about were very interesting. Science has become my favorite fourth grade subject. Mrs. Snider makes learning really fun, and I can't wait to see what we'll be learning about next.
