MATH: Module 11 Subtraction and Fractions
This week we will be working with three digit subtraction strategies with no regrouping. It is important that we practice these strategies for when we practice regrouping in module 12.
Later in Module 11, we will be extending our learning over fractions.
Check out our strategies we will be using below!
Our caterpillars are about to form their chrysalis!
We are still studying the anatomy of a butterfly, the life cycle of a butterfly, and what it takes to create a successful butterfly garden.
The students will be researching in groups to create a butterfly guide for next year's second graders.
Project Overview: Students will explore the relationship between plants and animals and discover the various host plants needed to sustain a butterfly and its larva. Then, they will design a butterfly guide on how to build a butterfly garden. A final butterfly guide will be chosen to present to the first grade classes.
