PE 🏃‍♀️

As every day, you should do your workout! Here is another soccer practice:

Math ➕➖✖➗

Now that we have talked about what multiplication is, time to get to the first number: 0. Multiplying by zero is super simple! It’s always 0! Think about it this way: when you look at your blocks, how many of them do you need? Zero – meaning none. Then you have zero blocks with dots on them! So it doesn’t matter how many dots are on the blocks 😊

Here is the multiplication table for today:

As we work on our multiplications, I will add the next column and next row until we fill the whole square. Make sure to work hard every day on your lesson, so you don’t have to learn too many at once later!

Since these are all the same, there is no worksheet today. That means no homework 😊 I am sure you are as excited as I am!

Here is an explanation:

Science 🔬


Rainbows are the colorful arches you see in the sky after the rain. But have you ever noticed that every once in a while, you can see them on water coming out of a sprinkler? Or in a fountain? That’s because rainbows happen when the light splits up into different colors when it goes through the water. It’s called refraction. Sunlight looks white to us, but it’s actually made up of lights in every color. Different color lights travel differently through water. So when they come out on the other side, they refract, which means they split up. When we draw the rainbow, we show 6 colors:

  • red
  • orange
  • yellow
  • green
  • blue
  • purple

I’m not sure if you remember that from your art classes, but these are called primary (yellow, red and blue) and secondary (orange, green and purple) colors. In reality, the rainbow shows all the shades in between, but that would be too much work to draw every time! And imagine needing all those crayons!

Did you know that rainbows are actually meant to be circles? The reason we don’t see the whole circle is because it’s usually too close to the ground and we don’t get to see the bottom part:

Religion in Ancient Egypt

In ancient Egypt, they had many gods. People believed that these deities (gods) were present in the world and controlled it. Pharaohs were supposed to be almost-gods and they were in charge of the religion. Through prayers, offerings and rituals, they communicated with the deities. The force keeping order in the world was called Ma’at.

Something very important for us to know about religion in ancient Egypt is what they thought about death, especially since tomorrow, we will be writing about the pyramids. Egyptians thought that people needed their bodies in the afterlife, which is what they believed happened to somebody after they died. That’s why they mummified the bodies – that’s the process of making a mummy. I am sure you know what a mummy looks like – they are in so many cartoons!

Egyptians worshiped animals as pets and they took really good care of them. Many of their gods looked like some of the animals, or at least had animal heads.

Here are some of the Egyptian gods:

  • Aten – god of the Sun disk, who was the one Egyptians worshiped when they tried having religion with only one god
  • Horus – he looked like a falcon; he was the god of the sky, the sun, kingship, protection, and healing
  • Isis – goddess of motherhood, protection, and magic
  • Osiris – god of death and resurrection
  • Ra – the sun god

Trivia ❓

Sponges (type of an animal) don’t have hearts.

Word of the day ❗

Symbol – something visible that represents something invisible.

Activity of the day 📺

For our experiment, we are going to make our own rainbows!
