Math: We are dividing decimals by decimals and applying our knowledge to real world problems.
Social Studies: We are starting research for our heroes project.
Fifth Grade Heroes Project
- The essay is more argumentative/opinion based and students will not only need to share important information about their person's life, but also give their opinion as to why SFT should build a statue of their hero (hypothetical situation.)
- The whole project is paper free. All of their work will be managed via Google Classroom and Google Docs. Your child can show you their work in progress on their iPads.
- We will have an essay contest with one winner from our class and one from Mr. Dial's room. The most convincing and well-written essays will be considered.
- We will be integrating art into this project by having students create a miniature clay sculpture of their hero.
