English Language Arts
Students led one another in great discussions and mathematical conversations, rich with new vocabulary! Our Division Math Forum was a huge success!
We look forward to taking what we know about multiplication and division and connecting it to finding area in polygons and real life applicable word problems. We also can't wait to learn another hands-on learning workplace, Division Capture!
Science- Water & Climate
This week, the meteorologists are excited to kick off our unit on Water and Climate.
This week we will conduct investigations to observe the properties of water, Earth’s most precious resource! They’ll compare how water drops interact with four materials: paper towel, waxed paper, aluminum foil, and writing paper to observe how water absorbency. Later in the week the students will engage in a challenge to measure how much water a dry sponge can soak up. They’ll determine this by measuring mass, volume, or perhaps even both. Integrating what they’ve learned in our math sessions will add for opportunities to explore real world experiences!
Students who complete THREE opportunity knocks activities by Friday, will have the chance to enter my class prize bin! If your child is looking for something fun to do this weekend, these just may be the answer you're looking for!
