Reading and Writing: Unit 8 Imagine and Express Your Ideas
Science: Unit 4 -The Water Cycle
In this unit, students will measure and compare the volume of water before and after evaporation; identify the state of matter of water at various stages in the water cycle; and measure and compare the temperature of water as it is heated and cooled.
Social Studies: Unit 4.6 Republic and Statehood
The Revolution is over and Texas is now a republic. In this unit, students will identify and describe the successes, problems, and people that impacted the Republic of Texas and the events resulting from the annexation of Texas to the United States. Point of view is an essential skill in this unit as Texas as a nation and a state becomes a representative government. Representative government is going to be a repeated political concept from now on in social studies courses and is important to emphasize.

Review Place value
This one is kind of hard but students need to understand that the value of each place-value position is ten times the position to the right and one-tenth of the value of the place to its left.
