6th Grade AIG Lion Team
Week of December 7th - 11th
This week in math, the students learned more about ratios, rate, and unit rate. The classes learned about new ways to find the unit rate in a problem. The ways they learned were: #1, using ratio tables, #2, using a tape diagram, and #3, using a double number line diagram. They will continue to learn about ratios leading into next week.
This week in science the students continued to learn more about the elements and the periodic table. They finished their “Adopt an Element” projects, and did a “Element Trading Card” one. The classes had a special visiter on Friday, so they had to do their “Genius Hour” time to Thursday. The special visitor was Mrs. Eisenhoffer’s eldest son, and he is a Neurochemist. He did simple experiments that related to what the students are learning. At the end of class, they got to ask him questions about the experiments and his job.
