10 Battle of the Books Read

15 Battle of the Books Read


This week we worked on multiplying and dividing with decimals. Students used the stategy of estimation to place the decimal point. We will be reviewing the unit next week and have a test on Thursday, May 19th.


We read a story called Moonwalk, which was a science fiction story that took place on the moon. It was an enjoyable story to read! We will continue working on drawing conclusions in our reading next week.


The class continued designing and building their solar cookers. They are finishing up and hopefully we will be ready to take them out into the sun next week! We also learned a lot about light, heat, and waves on our field trip to the Fermilab. Check out our pictures!
