POW: Puzzling Percents

Language Arts

This week in ELA, students will look over some punctuation, work on their contracts, and participate in an investigation into the Holocaust in preparation for our February 7th school speaker. Additionally, there are a number of writing contests in which your child is invited to participate. Ask him or her about the options available.

Science

This week we will be starting the climate/weather unit. Students will work on activities to introduce them to the vocabulary for the unit. We will observe two demonstrations on how air moves in the troposphere. Students will practice their writing skills in describing these demonstrations and how they relate to the movement of air in the atmosphere.

Social Studies

We are learning about Australia. Ask your child about "Waltzing Matilda."

Students have several assignments they are working on in order to learn about the Land Down Under.

Students should have started working on part 2 of Create a Country.
