We are Learning...
Math: We are learning about measurement. Students will be measuring objects using nonstandard and standards units of measure.
Writing: We will continue our nonfiction writing unit. Students will write informative/explanatory text in which they introduce a topic, use facts and definitions to develop points, and provide a concluding statement or section. Students will be taking notes from different resources as they research and gather information for their book.
Science: We will begin our unit on Engineering. Students will be asked to think like scientists in order to design a tool that meets a specific need. The materials for the tool must be reusable so they will use 21st century skills (collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking) to create innovative uses for previously used materials and objects.
