First, we came in the room and there was trash everywhere! Mrs. Salter was collecting trash and she spread it around the room and we had to pick up all the trash in the room. Then, we put all the trash in bags and weighed the bags but her scale only weighed grams, so we had to add all the grams together which was 3,534 grams. Then we raced to see who can find how many pounds we had in all. There were two groups of people it was Nate, Brody and Harrison and the other group was Brylee, R.J, and Kensley. The prize was airheads. We could use anything in the room to figure out how many pounds of trash we had.
Today in gifted we were learning how we could prevent our earth from becoming a giant pile of trash. When we walked in, it was a mess and we cleaned it up with gloves on. Then we measured how much trash we picked up in grams, then we split into groups and we had a competition to see who could find how many pounds it weighed. After that, we sorted the paper and plastic and we made homemade paper with the paper that was spread across the room. Today we had fun!
