Math and Science
This week marks the start of our Unit on Rational Numbers. this week students will be exploring positive and negative integers on a number line, representing real world situations with integers before ending with inequality statements and absolute value.
Students will be bringing home a new math workbook. This green workbook will need to be carried with them to and from school daily. It is the only book they are to be bringing back and forth daily for math. All homework will be from this workbook.
This week we are learning about the electromagnetic spectrum and solar radiation.
Please send in paper towel or bath tissue rolls (empty) for an experiment. Students who can bring in more than one will receive one ticket per roll.
Also, we will be constructing pizza box ovens at the end of the month- if you happen to dine out on pizza before the 21st, please save your box and send it in!
