What's Happening in 4th Grade!

Math

Students are learning to identify angles as we continue our geometry unit in math. We know that right angles measure 90˚. Today students used the terms acute, to describe angles smaller than 90˚, and obtuse to describe angles larger than 90˚. Look around your homes and neighborhoods for acute, obtuse, and right angles!


Canoeing Across Virginia

Fourth graders did a fantastic job during our museum! As students reflected on the experience, they realized the importance of planning and organization, differentiating for the different ages of our audiences, and how challenging it can be to engage listeners. Their knowledge and presentations were impressive. Way to go! Take a look at our pictures from the event.
