What Will We Be Learning This Week?
We will begin our study of measurement. Students will learn the Customary Units of Measure for length, weight and volume.
We will begin our unit on Animals and Animal Adaptations. We are hoping to have some live animals join us in the classroom for observations!
We will also be completing our Heritage Day projects.
